Classic Car Restorations
Owning a classic car is a thing of beauty, and ColourKit have experienced craftsmen who treat your vehicle as a work of art, lovingly restoring it to its original condition and taking on complex customised renovation projects.
Some of our recent restorations are a World War 2 Citroen H Van, a 1968 soft top Beetle and a 1962 Lamborghini. Other prestigious vehicles that have received bespoke restoration include Lotus, Maserati, Jaguar and Bentley.
We recently had a world famous designer ask us to create bespoke panels that were painted to a unique colour to match their branding.
Classic car paint finishes
Classic cars have a completely different original paint finish to modern cars, and the ability to replicate this exactly and precisely takes a great deal of knowledge and experience. We have a special machine in our paint room that can mix the original solvent paints to match any colour, no matter what age the vehicle is, going right back to the paint finishes used during World War Two.
Every panel will be carefully removed and completely re-sprayed – we don’t mask off small areas and then try to blend in the new paintwork with the old. This will cause paint flaking over time and after a few summers it is never fully invisible. The ColourKit experts have been working in this specialist field for many years, and enjoy nothing better than seeing a classic car restored to its former beauty.
High security for your treasured classic car
There are a number of high security measures built into our studio and workshop that give you complete peace of mind that your treasured possession will be safe and secure at all times when in our hands. Obviously we will not specify them here, but feel free to talk to us about them so we can set your mind at ease.
We know you will feel anxious while your vehicle is with us, and so we welcome you to pop in at any time to see what stage the work is at. Our technicians are proud of what they do, and enjoy telling you all about it. We have a customer lounge if you wish to stay for a while and catch up with your emails.
If you would like some advice about one of your existing classic cars, then please do call in to the Leicester studio anytime and you can talk directly to our experts. You can phone to make an appointment on 0116 3800 900, or email us your enquiry and we will be delighted to help.
I wanted to say that I have been impressed with the efficiency and professionalism you have displayed in relation to the bodywork repairs which you recently carried out on my vehicle. Thank you for reducing the stress and disruption that’s inevitable in such circumstances.
