Sandydown specialises in top quality restoration and repair work on vehicles of any age.
We are fortunate in having state of the art low bake ovens, jigs, and facilities that many of the smaller body shops undertaking restoration can only aspire to owning. This coupled with a highly skilled and dedicated workforce of 14 full time staff ensure that restorations are executed to the highest possible standards.
Whenever possible only genuine factory parts are used during restoration work and we hold a number of secondhand and obsolete parts in stock. We are lucky enough to have our own fabrication workshop and Sandydown also work closely alongside Southbound Trimmers – who are also located in Stockbridge.
All our work is guaranteed and a full photographic record of work undertaken is offered to every customer.Fixed price and stage restorations are considered and undertaken. Customers are involved in the restoration by regular updates as well as being encouraged to visit Sandydown to see the progress of their vehicles firsthand.
We have worked on Porsche, Jaguar, Ferrari, MG, AC Cobra Rolls Royce and Bentley motorcars. Indeed more than one Sandydown vehicle has been exhibited at the NEC Classic Car Show to high acclaim.
We offer a speedy and effective repair to the bodywork of your vehicle, whether you are a private, commercial or trade customer.
Sandydown is a member of VIBRA the Vehicle Insurance Body Repair Association
We can offer paintless dent removal, and where paint is required we use a low bake oven to ensure a durable paint finish that frequently surpasses the original manufactures standards of finish.
We use premuium polishes such as Swissvax and Zymol polishes for professional car detailing and concours preparation of bodywork.
We source our paint from Akzo Nobel and ICI, all major paint suppliers.
We also have the technology to ensure your repaired bodywork will match the paint on the rest of your car. We do this using technology that can tell us the exact colour of your existing paintwork, reading it from the surface of your car. We then mix the paint to match.
