Hi.
Mobile welding and repairs business for classic cars. Minis inparticular but other classics too.

Come to your house to work on your car.

Much of my work is people restoring their cars in their garage and they need some welding doing. Its easier than trying to get the car to a garage. Plus they charge through the roof.

Im not afraid to take on bigger jobs. Recently went to a job in Blackburn (173 miles from me) for a '63' MGB. was there for 6 days replacing both sills (4 parts each), the floor, rear quarters, etc. A total restoration. The guy brought it not realising it was so bad. I think most of us have been there!!

I have restored a few minis too. Putting in a Rover K series in my mini at the moment. Toying with the idea though of taking that out and dropping in a four wheel drive honda vtec or front engine/rear wheel drive bike engine.

Very reasonable prices and quality work for your pride and joy.

Email / call me on [email protected] / 07877950553.

This is just what the market place needs.

Keep your prices fair and the care/quality good and you should be onto a winner.

Good luck

I work on the basis of 200 per day, or 25 per hour.
To give an idea of certain panels. An Outer sill will normally take around three hours including a couple of inner sill/step repairs. A full front end (A panels, wings, front panel, scuttle) about 4-5 hours. All depends on your cars amount of rust.

Nope, its normally a hourly based rate or labour charges etc.

I look forward to hearing from you. Here is a picture of one of my Minis at London to Brighton this year. Ran out of time to get it painted so MOT'd it the day before and went like that.
