This beautiful 1973 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a 2 year restoration. Our meticulous attention to detail meant that it was a long and slow proses and we had to rely on the absolute best in the industry to help us achieve this high standard. Rechroming, bodywork & paint and the interior was all outsourced to professionals who didn't disappoint. Our own team, lead by Mark Jutan, also gave their very best on the mechanical side of things with the end-result being breathtaking.
In 2016, we were requested to complete a cosmetic restoration on a Shadow II that had been standing in a collection for a number of years.The brief was - colour change on exterior, restore interior with grey leather and red carpeting with grey piping. Along with the colour change of the interior, the roof lining also had to be replaced with grey leather. Furthermore, the woodwork was restored to a brilliant colour and quality. As with all restorations, the colour choices and cosmetic treatments are to the clients' specifications. The standard rims and ventilated hubcaps were replaced with a later style wheel. The result, as you can see from the photographs, is a shinning light blue metallic Shadow II that is now back with the owners. An incredible amount of time (and money) went into this restoration, but the end result was more than beautiful on completion. Another revival of a classic that we can be proud of!
A beautiful Aston Martin V8 that we restored for a client. This 1979 model was referred to as the Series 4 or the "Oscar India". The "Oscar India" specification was introduced in October 1978. Visually, the former scoop on the bonnet gave way to a closed "power bulge" while a spoiler was integrated into the tail. Just 352 Oscar India models were built from 1978 through 1985.

1975 Rolls-Royce Corniche

1975 Rolls-Royce Corniche Restoration
After many years of enjoyment and ownership, Mr. Carel Smit decided it was time to restore his much loved 1975 Rolls-Royce Corniche fixed head coupe. A man of uncompromising detail, this project had to be completed to what was in his minds eye. Having selected a beautiful colour for the exterior and interior, a top quality carpet for the interior and boot, it was all systems go. A long, and sometimes arduous journey lay ahead. As a company, we realized that to reach Mr. Smit's expectations and more, we would have to manage the process to ensure a very high standard of quality. This we managed and much to Mr.Smit's  delight, the car he spent so much time and effort to get to his requirements, won it's class in the Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owners Club concourse. Have a look at the photographs and see the final gorgeous result that has everyone in rapture. Enjoy, and let us do the same for you.
