Prestige Paintworks can undertake a full or partial restoration of any automotive vehicle. Full inventories are given to all vehicles dis-assembled, with every detail and part being documented.
A full restoration includes chemical dipping or blasting the shell, metal beating and shaping, lap joint reinforcement, lead loading welded joints if required and door gaps being minimised. The vehicles are then levelled with a fine skim of body filler, leaving a flawless, unbroken reflection when painted. The bodywork is then epoxy primed for anti-corrosive protection and then given a high-build primer.
Once it has been dry sanded, the car is then spray painted with the colour of choice and the bodywork flattened and polished to produce a flawless deep gloss shine. The vehicle is then refitted using new hardware, with new plumbing and components installed to complete the restoration process.
The majority of the restoration work takes place in the workshop. Engine work for Aston Martin and Jaguars are outsourced to the marques’ specialists, as well as chroming and upholstery work.
