Panel Fabrication and Body Work

The luxury of driving down the road to an automotive dealership and ordering a new panel at the spare parts counter for a car that is up to ten years old, is a luxury unfortunately not always available for a classic car.

Fabricating a brand new panel starts with either, a drawing if it is quite basic and a series of straight folds, or for more elaborate patterns, profiles in either cartridge paper or steel to mimic the shape and contours to replicate what is required.

Our panel fabrication area has equipment that has been around since the 1950s and are maintained to keep working today and fabricate whatever panels that we require. The machines themselves are great, but they require a highly skilled coach builder to operate them. Fabricating any number of panels whether it be just one section of a Porsche 356 sheet metal or an entire bodyshell.
