Spares & Repairs
We do not supply cheap inferior parts where we believe it compromises safety. Safety is our first priority and the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten!
We do not supply any secondhand or used mechanical parts but can supply body parts e.g panels, doors etc.
We realise some customers like to spend many hours on the internet sourcing their own parts, which obviously isn’t practical or cost effective for us to do, so we have no problems fitting customer-supplied replacement new parts or second hand body parts. If we think the customer-supplied part will compromise safety we reserve the right to refuse to fit it.
Most general service parts we can supply same or next day. Specialist spares and parts for older classic vehicles needing to be ordered from the USA usually take 10-14 days from order. These parts can often be Fed-Ex’d over within a few days at extra cost, should time be an issue. Our mail order service is efficient, fast and simple. Please be sure to have the vehicle vin number to hand when enquiring/ordering. This, hopefully, guarantees the part ordered is the correct one for your particular vehicle. Once on our secure database, repeat ordering is easy and fast.
Every repair is different so every case is priced separately. These range from minor welding repairs or fabricating small parts to major engine or panel work.
New panels fitted, sections fabricated and all welding – gas and electric welding by experienced welders who take pride in every job they do.
All paintwork from a tiny scratch to a full respray with special requests and graphics quoted for.
Wheels refurbished or replaced at very reasonable prices. Tyres – classic, whitewall and American spec all sourced.
