Bodyshop & Restoration

Why choose Quillers to restore  or respray your Triumph?

We believe we are the largest dedicated Triumph garage in the UK with space in our workshop for over 25 cars. We are very proud of our restoration and bodyshop facilities. A parking scrape to a full body-off restoration is given the same exacting attention to detail.

We concentrate on Triumphs; this specialization allows us to dedicate ourselves solely to one marque, as the acknowledged Triumph specialists.

Potential customers are encouraged to take a tour of our workshop to examine work in progress. We normally have several Triumphs at various stages of restoration.

We provide full free written estimates - which are always adhered to unless we have prior specific instructions from the customer - no unpleasant surprises!

We provide full photographic history of each and every restoration and  respray - see here for examples of our recent work and the photo albums given to customers on job completion.

Customers are very welcome to view the work in progress on their vehicle at any time.

On judging which bodyshop to use it is usually worth:

  • asking to see work in progress
  • asking the owners club (or better still, go to your local meeting and ask around)
  • asking for a comprehensive and final quotation

We are very well aware that every job has its budget and very rarely is "money no object". Restoring a car to an exacting standard is one thing - doing it cost-effectively is another.

Paintshop

All our paintwork is undertaken in our purpose-built hot bake oven using Two Pack Paints or the very latest Clear-Over-Base system. We can also spray in cellulose or pearlescents on request.

Full resprays incorporate a complete vehicle body strip (the removal of all lights, bumpers, windscreen & glass, door handles etc). Although this is by no means the quickest (or the cheapest) approach to a respray, the only alternative is to mask up the components not to be painted with the resultant overspray marks on the windscreen rubber, door handle gaskets and every where else. We feel that for restoration and paintwork the old adage "if its worth doing, its worth doing properly" is certainly true. See here for photo histories of our recent projects

As regards prices, we would need to see the vehicle and assess the condition of its panels when we could give a precise firm price, but generally a full respray on a Spitfire is about 1300 up to 2100 for a 2000 - however if new panels or corrosion repair work is required before paint can be applied this would be in addition to respray cost.

F.A.Q: Ok, I appreciate your paintwork is high quality, but is there a possibility of doing something cheaper?
