Restoration & Repairs
We have a team of highly skilled trade professionals who can transform and rejuvenate old rusty, cracked, pitted, bent, broken metal and diecast parts into a great restoration job.
Our REPAIR Shop on the premises can bring parts back to life, to a high standard ready to be chromed. You can send or drop in your damaged parts and we can repair and chrome the part/s without the running around and hassle. Our repair shop may not be modern, it has old presses and bumper bar casts that have long since disappeared everywhere else, and very much sought after.
This process is quite personal and requires much labour and steps to produce the best finish possible. These include the following:
During this process all previous coatings and rust will be removed. A perfectly clean surface is necessary before proceeding further.
We have a first class repairer on hand who will knock out any dents, fill holes, weld and solder all types of material from smashed bumper bars, diecast parts and much more.
This process is again labour intensive. This is where the dull or pitted scratched surface is polished to a perfectly smooth surface.
Many of the items can be plated with a coating of copper to provide added protection. This copper coating is then again polished to provide that extra depth and blemish free finish. In some cases three or more coats of copper are need to restore older or more damaged parts.
The copper part is then cleaned again ready to be put in the nickel bath and then later chromed for a superior quality and a super bright chrome finish.
