We have a body shop for welding, body repairs and spray painting. We specialize in engine and gearbox rebuilding in house.

We would be happy to take on one person for the body shop and possibly 2 other Students or Apprentices for the mechanical side.

We would consider applicants of any age. My team have a wealth of knowledge and are willing to teach keen applicants.
