What We Do

We will take your parts and remove any grease or paint and repair any damage found before vapour blasting.

We will keep in close contact with the customer to advise. For work received by mail order, we will always contact the customer with price and delivery before any work commences.

We are specialist restorers and take care of 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.

What They Say

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

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

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.

Jeff West, Restorer

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
