About Us

Vapour blasting specialist is a trading name of Central Engineering Design Ltd who are specialist in the restoration of vintage, classic and custom vehicle bright work. Please browse our other website http://www.chromerestorationspecialist.co.uk

We were based in Hythe for 26 years and moved to Folkestone in 2014 and during that time we built a reputation for quality and service among professional restorers from all over Europe and as far away as Delaware USA.

Vapour blasting as you know is a stand alone finish that can be applied to materials such as Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Titanium. But we can also use it as a proprietary finish before Chrome and Nickel plating to produce beautiful contrasting and complex finishes.

Our expertise in vapour blasting is second to none and we are able to help and advise our customers on the best possible finish that can be achieved with there parts.

What We Do

We are specialist restorers and take care in the handling and processing of your parts to ensure that the parts we receive are the parts you receive back. Restored  to the highest possible standard the materials will allow.

The parts are cleaned to remove any paint, grease or surface contaminates before vapour blasting. Any parts found to have deep scratches or dents can be welded and polished by ourselves before processing. This will ensure you get a perfect result.

We take care to ensure no damage will occur to mechanical parts and will advise you if there are any risks before processing.

What They Say

Just a quick email to say thank you for the extremely good work done by yourselves on the re-chrominance of all the parts, and also the additional repairs to the front and rear mudguards.

I would certainly recommend your company to others and, should the need arise use your services again.

Richard Gretton, Restorer

Firstly I would like to thank you for all the superb chroming work you have done on my bike over the years.

My bike gets used as often as possible, and I get a great deal of pleasure from the way it looks – you are the only plater I have found who can get chrome to ‘stick’ to Aluminium alloy for any given period of time.

Kevin Braydon, Motorbike Owner

I collected my bumper and overriders today and unwrapped them to be delighted with the excellent chrome work. I shall be letting my friends know at the Rover club if that’s OK with you?

Mark Haresign, Rover P5b Member

Just to let you know that we have unwrapped the chromes that you did for us and that we received a couple of weeks ago. All of us in the workshop were absolutely stunned by the quality of the workmanship and finish.

The blades shipped to you had the usual rust in the usual places, but what we have received back are better than new!

Thank you so much for your excellent work and I am afraid there will be more business coming your way soon!

Theresa Knowles, Knowles-Wilkins Engineering

I have recently had some parts Chromed for my Tom Senior Milling Machine. I would like to thank you for the flawless Chroming on these parts concerned, and the helpful attitude of the staff I had dealings with when I was at your premises.
