History

We have been running courses for 10 years and these are growing in popularity. Many people return to complete an advanced course after completing the foundation. Even those who have been working in the industry for many years comment that they have learn't so much and seen where they are making basic mistakes.

Advantages of studying here

There are very few providers of this type of course in the country. We are not a college and there will be no course work.Bruce and Iain have been working for over 30 years in this industry specialising in Jaguar XK's and providing panels to people with very high standards. The parts we make are shipped to the 4 corners of the world, as our reputation is second to none.

Areas of specialisation

They will be of special interest to professional or amateur restorers of classic cars, vintage aircraft, customisers, kit & special car builders, sculptors etc. The techniques involved are relevant to any sheet metalwork where complex shapes and structures need to be produced or restored.
