So have you heard about the latest social media website? Well it’s called Pinterest, basically an online pin-board for all your favourite digital imagery you see around the web. We thought it would be a cool place to be plus it should be an opening for others to discover our work within our extensive online photo galleries and throughout this website.

See us on Pinterest

It’s also a great place to find inspiration and see what others find unique or special. After a quick search you’ll soon discover a wonderful array of impressive photography, unique styling, bodywork, rare cars, rare vintage cars and one-off’s. In fact within 30seconds we’d already seen a photo of the Lagonda V12 Le Mans ‘Gunville Special’ someone had pinned.

As of today we only have two pin boards or just ‘boards’ – What We Do and Antiques and Copperwork up and running but we’ll be creating more shortly.

You’ll also may have noticed we’ve added small Pin It buttons next to all our photographs and within each photo lightbox pop-up making it super easy for you share that photo on Pinterest.

Follow us by clicking the big Follow me on Pinterest above or the square ‘P’ button next to our YouTube channel button on the top right hand corner of every page.

Happy pinning…

We’ve just manufactured three small batches of the popular Aston Martin DB2 front wing mouldings, rear light plinths and DB4 & DB5 internal roof trims for Aston Service Dorset so if you’re after any these bodywork parts then give them a call.

We’ve also updated our respective online part galleries with these new gleaming photos sets and finally completed this sites Aston Martin projects page for those aluminium DB4 and DB5 internal roof trims.

If you’re wondering how great our brasswork’s looking that’s mainly down to our new variable speed polishing/buffing machine which is now up and running at long last! Know doubt you’ll be seeing even more shiny metalwork from now on…

We’ve just updated our extensive Vintage Bentley photo galleries with our newly fabricated aluminium exhaust and silencer box cladding for McKenzie Guppy’s special Bentley Speed Six build.

This wasn’t an easy job – an enclosed structure, double curvatures, concave recesses, built in sections yet had to look the part with a brushed aluminium finished.

The snake like exhaust pipe sections were made in two halves TIG welded together. The centre section was constructed separately tailored around the mounting bracket. The Exhaust silencer cladding box was made from a single wrap of rolled aluminium sheet welded along the join, again, with neat clad-work around the chassis mounting point.

The exhaust cladding has a number of functions, namely;

  1. to encapsulate the heat resistant binding used along the pipe work
  2. help with some heat retention under the drivers seat, and of course
  3. look professional

Please view our selection of 34 photos of the job in progress through to when it was completed and mounted on the car.

For the past number of weeks we have been fabricating a brand new bumper set for a 1930’s Packard 12 build a colleague of ours is currently undertaking.

At first glance they look fairly straight forward but on closer inspection you’ll see subtle curves in the blades and tapered blade end points where they wrap around the ends. With double curvatures within each handed blade it’s important we maintained the parallel straight edges along each length, we took great care in making sure we achieved this.

The chrome dome ends that are a popular design feature on this type of American vehicle are attached in an unconventional way – they’re just bonded in place – so we had to construct the end points in a slightly different way to how we would on a British car of this era. At the end of the day I’m sure they’ll look great when the blades are chromed and irons painted.

Each bumper is detachable from its ironwork configuration by way of a simple nut and bolt hidden within the end point. We were not commissioned to make the over-riders, they’ll be handled by our fellow coachbuilding colleague.

We left the bare metal with a neat hand brushed finish ready for the coppering and chroming processes.

Why not see our our full Packard bumper set photo album in our new Packard gallery.
