FULL CHASSIS UP

We have restored Big Healey projects from basket cases that have been left to rot for forty years, to tired but up and running cars. So we can take on as much or as littles as you require. From a full re-build up to MOT and road testing or just the bodywork.

We can restore all Big Healey body tubs ready for your new Healey project.

This service comprises:

  • The old tub and chassis is blast cleaned.
  • The chassis is re jigged.
  • Chassis and inner panel repairs are done using new parts.
  • Outer panels including ally. shrouds repaired or replaced.
