Not as yet but as the job comes in we will just buy the kit.
It’s only £55-100 at the end of the day.

Under no circumstances will I confirm or deny if you’ll enjoy the coffee...*laughs*

Doors always open, kettles always on and we are 7 days a week. Come say hello.
I will certainly do that, looking forward to it. :cool
However, Nanny state has decided that we should all lock away in our tickytackies for THE GREATER GOOD.
All depends if you listen to the old hag, usually goes in one ear and out the other with me :laughing

It will have to be a weekend as I'm flatout during the week. As it's a 4 hour drive I can assure you I wont be there too early in the morning :laughing2

For those who haven't been keeping up with the other social medias we use, thanks to lock down 6.0 and Christmas we decided to start making the place look pretty.

Got a lovely contender for a show stand car in the future, I’ve just posted it on our fb & insta.

51k blue 213 one of 19 left according to the owner.

Coming in for cosmetics and full engine work, so will be ready for the next show season in 2024......

Good to see the bodywork repairs Craig. What’s next on that arch in terms of the finishing process?

That’s actually finished in stoneguard and painted in customers own tempest grey.
We are still a way off having our own paint booth so for now that’s as far as we can get without outsourcing and apparently every paint guy in a 20 mile radius is on drugs price wise and my mobile guy who I normally use is booked solid.
