These are the garages and service providers we use and recommend.
BG Motor Services
Unit 10 Farningham Road
I've used this garage for all repairs since it opened. Luke took over the business from his father a few years ago, but I have known him all his life. I would trust them 100% for all my classic repairs. Very caring local company. Servicing -MOT - Repairs - Air Con - Tyres.
Hildenborough MOT Centre
Unit 2 Brookside
Kent, TN11 9DR
The only place for classic MOT's Nigel is very sympathetic to the foibles of the classic car by not using the sledge hammer approach to test wheel bearings etc.
Easy to find, several units behind the petrol station.
Sussex Classics LTD
West Sussex RH10 4HS
Very highly recommended. This is the garage we all use by choice. Small operation so nice personal service. Very friendly staff and great rates with 100% quality service. Can collect and deliver. Can guarantee they will do a top job and you wont be disappointed. Always mention the club to get the best rates.
Wins International Ltd
Unit 21b Durkins Road
Charlwoods Road Industrial Estate,
West Sussex, RH19 2ER
|The main local
agent for all spares. What he doesn't have to hand he will get
within days, and that includes the 'no longer available' items
so often seen on other sites.
Website www.winsintltd.co.uk not to good so phone for parts. Collection advisable as he isn't geared for post. Worth a visit just to say hello and marvel at the parts there. And take a map, not an easy place to find.
Colour Coating South East
Unit 19, Warsop Trading Estate
Kent, TN8 5LD
Powder coating and sandblasting. Best check website, but another great restoration company on our doorstep.
Cluster Repairs UK
Dene View Farm
Gloucestershire, GL17 9TU
and all other instrument repairs.
Website address tells it all. Met at the restoration show and seems to be a reliable company.
Unit 1,Crop Drier Works
Surrey, RH7 6DF
For all and any trim, roof linings, car seats, dashboards, carpets etc. Highly recommended by our members. Will come out to do estimates, and happy to disassemble at your home, take away the parts and refit again at your premises. Very enthusiastic guys, great communications, good transport links, lift to station available.
|Replica Tax Disc's||Terry Orchard on firstname.lastname@example.org Top quality with all the correct information. Very reasonable pricing. Blog/Website http://roverplus.blogspot.co.uk/|
Classic Silicon Hoses Ltd
31 Main Street
Leicestershire, LE67 1DN
Mary very helpful and very chatty. Extremely high quality hoses in all shapes and sizes. Highly recommended. Not an easy website to place orders so you really need to know exactly what you want rather than relying on the site to help. But most kits available.
Michael Wood Dashboard Restoration
Unit 9A Lady Bee Marina
West Sussex, BN42 4EP
All dashboard and woodwork refurbishment. Nice and local so pop down and get a quote. Website does look like a furniture restorer, but met him at the NEC restoration show. His dashboard samples look far more correct to the originals. And you can get your dinning table to match your car !!
Shropshire, TF1 2BG
As seen several times on Car SOS a huge stock of parts from the 1920's to Triumph classics. Website doesn't do any justice to the service they provide, you had to see them on Car SOS to appreciate the vastness of no longer available parts they have on the shelf.
ShureLock (Nick Hood)
Pillings Road Industrial Estate
Rutland, LE15 6QF
The one thing you hope to never need. The best in the business for stitching split blocks.
12 Roman Ridge Road
Sheffield, S9 1GB
Despite the spooky name and website, I've got some cracking bits from these guys. Very helpful and friendly.
No address available
Triumph not mentioned on the list, but this is the place for anything rally grade, petrol hose, pumps, clips, electric fan sensors etc. Well worth a look round.
Castle Combe Race Circuit
Wiltshire, SN14 7EY
Best site going for all hoses, petrol pumps, fans, electric water pumps, even spitfire hubs etc, gauges, ignition, overalls oh! the list is endless. I always carry catalogues with me as the site can't cover the full stock.
Gearbox and Transmission rebuilds
268 Kingston Road
Surrey, KT22 7QA
Too much to explain here. Visit website
Moved from Plumpstead to Lewis,Sussex and mail order only. They seem to be getting themselves organised now and have a vast stock of used and new parts. Check website for details, currently we don't have the new address.
Chrome Restoration Specialists
CE Design Ltd
Riverside Industrial Estate
West Hythe,CT21 4NT
All chrome jobs undertaken. Good website for more information.
Overdrive Repair Services,
Holbrook Industrial Estate,
Sheffield, S20 3RW
Highly recommended for overdrive repairs and rebuilds
Classic Cars of Kent +
Southern Rebore Services
Burnt Oak Road,
High Hurstwood, TN22 4AE
The top restoration company in the UK. And on our doorstep. Big enough to have a museum. But geared up for full restoration projects not medium to large repairs. They have now acquired Southern Rebore Services for any engine rebuilds. Always worth a visit.
28 Colebrook Industrial Estate
Kent TN2 3DG
Auto electrical specialists. Good for alternator rewinds etc. Website currently unavailable but worth a call for any electrical issues.
