Not everything's a full resto but all bodywork is undertaken to the highest standards. Best way to get an idea is to browse the following pics of recent customer restorations and give me a call to discuss your requirements.

We can cater for even the most rotten bus you can find ,we never turn any job down our skill in welding and fabrication is second to none we work to the highest standard and Simon our main welder is the best around

its not just buses, we have a passion for all things air cooled and some water klinkers too (occasionally)like the K70 below which was vw's first ever water cooled car.
