Talk to us about the Technicalities of Car Body Repair

Every car repair is different. Some vehicles can be completely out of shape after a heavy impact and need to be rejigged. Others need panels to be beaten back to shape, though sometimes it's more sensible to replace panels entirely. If you're interested in what goes on behind the roller doors have a chat to us.

An E Type renovation is hardly your everyday repair job, but the same principles apply when you bring your 'workhorse' car to C and R. We'll assess the work that needs to be done, the parts that have to be ordered, the materials that the job will take and how long is needed. Certain jobs are trickier than others, but overall the principles of car body repair are similar. We'll be covering particular topics in our blog.
