Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We’d like to wish all our customers & followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Here’s hoping all your projects get fulfilled and your plans come to fruition!

And if your last year’s resolution was to get your car finished, and you haven’t, then GET ON WITH IT!

All the best….

We are pleased to announce that we are now extending our opening hours to include Saturday mornings.  We will be opening the doors at 8:30am and closing at midday.  The aim is to help those who can’t easily take time off during normal working hours and give them a window to come down and see us.  It will also benefit the rolling road testing side of our business, allowing owners clubs to arrange meets with potential discounts for larger groups available.



Follow the ups and downs, aswell as the upside-downs of running an off-road racer in our new blog on our Facebook page.  It’s public access – you don’t need a Facebook account to view it. is the address to find our page.

The Rally Raid Desert Warrior (pictured left in it’s more common state) campaigned by Bill Nixon this year is a Discovery II based, Rover V8 powered vehicle we support in competitive events.  We organise storage, transportation, logistics, preperation service/repair duties.  Bill and his co-driver Fraser take care of the driving/competiting.

We’ve also added a new blog –  trying to rid an Alfa Romeo 75 of rot.  We’re also in the final stages of building a BMW E46 M3 Touring, the blog of which will feature on there shortly.  Well, we do seem to take on jobs others say can’t be done!
