Classic Car Bodywork Service Overview

Initial Assessment

Our skilled team of classic car mechanics will conduct a visual inspection of the vehicle's bodywork to assess the extent of the damage, including dents, scratches, rust, and structural issues.

Surface Preparation

If necessary, we will prepare the damaged areas for repair by cleaning, sanding, and removing any paint or rust. This ensures a clean surface for the repair process.

Classic Car Repair or Replacement

Depending on the severity of the damage, our mechanics would then decide whether to repair or replace the affected body panels or components. This could involve techniques such as metalworking, welding, or fibreglass repair.

Panel Straightening

For dented or misaligned panels, our craftsmen would use specialised tools and techniques to carefully straighten and reshape the metal without causing further damage.

Classic Car Rust Repair

If rust is present, we would remove the affected areas and treat them with rust inhibitors. We may also patch or replace sections of rusted metal to restore structural integrity.

Priming and Painting

Once the repairs are complete, our team prime the repaired areas to protect against corrosion and ensure proper paint adhesion. We then carefully match the paint colour and apply multiple layers of paint to blend seamlessly with the rest of the classic car.

Finishing Touches

After painting, our classic car mechanics would apply a clear coat and perform any necessary buffing or polishing to achieve a smooth, glossy finish. We may also reinstall trim pieces, badges, and other exterior components.

Why are Classic Car Bodywork Repairs Needed?

As classic cars age, their bodywork can deteriorate due to factors such as exposure to the elements and general wear and tear. This deterioration can manifest as rust, dents, scratches, and other forms of damage that compromise both the appearance and structural integrity of the vehicle. Additionally, classic cars may have been involved in accidents over the years, resulting in varying degrees of damage to their bodywork. Whether minor or severe, repairing the bodywork is crucial for restoring aesthetic appeal and functionality to the car.
