Restorations and Modifications
It’s not all about putting things right after an accident or mishap. The Bodyshop47 team are only too keen to put their skills to work restoring your vehicle too. You may have an old classic that is more a part of the family than just a means of transport or maybe you just cannot face the prospect of driving anything full of electrickery and desire to keep things simple. Just bring it to us and let us restore it to as near new condition as possible. See our Restoration & Rebuild page for more details.
Chassis replacement and bulkhead repairs
There are quite a few vehicles – Land Rover Defenders are a prime example! – where the vehicle would probably live on forever if it wasn’t for a couple of components with a shorter shelf-life than the rest of the package. The chassis and bulkhead need looking after if you expect them to keep you going for more than a handful of years. If you haven’t been keeping the Waxoyl Treatments up to date or if you’ve just bought an older used vehicle why not ask us about chassis replacement and bulkhead repairs?
We offer a quick and simple replacement service using a fully galvanised chassis that should keep the old girl going long enough for your Grand-children to enjoy driving it.
A fully restored Defender with galvanised chassis, resprayed, retrimmed and rebuilt stainless steel fixtures can often be a lot cheaper than buying a new or late model example. It will certainly last you a lot longer and it will be built to your exact requirements.
Motorhome and Caravan repairs
There are few places that can both accommodate these larger units and have the expertise to fettle them. Almost all modern motorhomes and caravans make heavy use of composite materials – what we used to call fibreglass in the old days – and it requires a particular skill-set to carry out successful and invisible repairs or modifications. Call us with your requirements. And while we have your ‘van why not get us to add those extra plug sockets you always wished it had. We do electrics too!
If you know you plan to restore your vehicle eventually or get it repaired but need to wait for the finances to fall into place then we can also store your vehicle for you. Please see our Vehicle Storage page for more details or call us for a quote.
