Our main area of expertise is is vintage and classic car coolant systems but we also work on vehicle radiators from heavy plant, generators, tractors, forklift trucks as well as HGVs.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we do not upgrade from the original specifications on your vehicle and we try to bring it back, as near as possible, to its original factory condition.
We do not weld patches of sheet metal over rust areas just to satisfy the MOT inspection, as this will only allow water/moisture ingress which will create bigger problems at a later stage. We cut out the affected area and replace with new panels.
A passion has risen into a business and so over 20 years of pushing, nudging, sanding, banging and polishing has resulted in over 150 cars still on the road.
We just adore them in all their forms. We can see beauty in a rusting carcase and dream of the day when the restoration is complete! If you have a Morris or Healey which needs some attention, then come and talk to us.
We have been a member of the Federation of Small Businesses for over 10 years and have been with the the Morris Minor Owners Club for 12 years.
We have extensive workshop facilities for all types of metal work from guillotining and folding to welding and lead loading. We do resprays, rebuild engines and clutches and do rewiring and upholstery.

If an engine has been standing for some time, is badly maintained, using excessive oil or is extremely noisy it may need a rebuild. The engine, however, will give you ample warning before it gives up the ghost! One of the main causes of engine failure can be the electrical components. Regular servicing is essential to help prolong the life of your engine.
