The MX5 Restorers reputation and business model was built on the back of the quality of our welding repairs, the rest of the business developed from there, our whole business has been built on the philosophy of “do it right or not at all” which is never more important than it is with welding repairs.

It breaks our heart to see a customer come to us having had a repair done elsewhere that has not been done to our standard, especially when we often find that they have paid the same or more than it would have cost to have us repair it. The important thing with any rust repair is to ensure all the rust is removed along with any defective metal, then all the new metal should be protected with rust preventative coatings on the inside faces before being welded into place, once welded in all weld lines should be dressed back then skim filled before being painted with stone chip paint (just like the original coating) and then colour painted, that is exactly how we carry out our repairs and when the job is finished we inject cavity wax into the back of the sill. On top of this we give a 3 year guarantee against the repaired area being the reason for failing an MOT.

Call or email to book yours in, or discuss your requirements, we often give estimates via email, all we need is some photos of the rusty areas, although this is not always as accurate as seeing the car in person our extensive experience with these repairs allows us to be fairly accurate with email estimates, which gives you a good ball park figure to work with.
