Hi Chris,

Thought you might like to see these photos I took today of my car. It’s parked just across the road from our house, by the church that we got married in last year. It looks absolutely stunning. Thank you for doing such an amazing job. This car means so much to me and now it will give me so many more years of enjoyment.

If you can use any of these photos on your Facebook page, please feel free.

Many thanks again.

Garath has done a fantastic job on my turbo install, I couldn’t be more happy with it. Loving the turbo power, it’s very addictive.

I can’t recommend Garath, and Marc @ Paragon Auto Finishing, enough! Top work guys, thank you!


Turbo, intercooler, power steering and a clutch fitting

I am very impressed with the work you carried out to the rust on my car. The repaired areas now look like new and the colour match is perfect. I would recommend you to anyone who wants top quality work done at a reasonable price. (Other body shops told me that it would be very difficult to match the red paintwork but there were no such comments from you; just a really professional job.)



Just a quick thread just to give props to Garath on his work.

I had rust, bad rust. Not only has he sorted it all out perfectly he even went out of his way to get it done in a stupid irrational time frame set by myself.

So this thread is a huge thank you and also a huge recommendation for anyone else considering using his services.

Huge thanks dude!


Big thanks to Garath and Chris, I now own a car with kosher mot for the first time in 4 years, excellent service as ever.



Picked mine up from Garath yesterday after having the rear sills welded. Quality of work and customer service both second to none. Another satisfied customer, thanks



Thanks for the work on the car – it looks better than new where you have weaved your magic. And the roof is brilliant!

Yes, I have just come home from having the winter check done today and, being of a cynical bent, I was amazed at both the sincerity and the dedication of Garath and his colleague (whose name I didn’t catch – sorry!); they really LOVE 5s and clearly DO know all there is to know!

I drove there all ‘worried’ and came back in what felt like a new car!

Don’t get me wrong – I had the service too – but seriously, money very well spent even if only for peace of mind in the coming months, as well as in respect of what else might need doing in their considered opinion to bring the 5 up to spec.

A BIG thank-you.


You recently did a lot of work on my green Mk1.

Just to let you know it passed its MoT today with the only advisories being on those two cracked tyres.
My regular independent mechanic and the tester remarked that your work on it was immaculate and that clearly I’d spent a fair amount on it.



Had this done on Friday, and was warmly welcomed by the chaps at MX5Restorers! Garath spent ages checking the car and hunting around it. I got to look at deconstructed MX5s whilst I was there, so now I have a better idea of how the things are put together.

Can’t thank you enough for this! It really put my mind at ease, and confirmed my suspicions about my sills but I’ll be back post-Christmas to get them sorted!


Cannot recommend these guys enough, their work is spot on, they are knowledgeable (Garath isn’t just a kick ass welder you know), friendly, and if that doesn’t sway you they are excellent bang for buck oh and my mate likes their tea. If distance is putting you off, then let me say firstly the drive is worth it and secondly from London their a doddle to get to as well as it’s m25 onto a21 and after that it’s pretty much just go straight.

Also in addition if you pop down it’s WELL WELL worth talking to Marc there as well, seriously the guy can do things with a buffer you would not believe… oh and he can polish your car with it as well and I’m talking polished to the point of “no maybe I don’t need that respray after all” shiny.



Just like to say that the service I received from your company was second to none, having been to many, so called, “MX5 specialists”, I can say that you are in a class of your own. I booked the car in some months ago to coincide with a visit to the UK, as I reside in South West France. I was on a tight schedule but purposely allowed a couple of days “Just in case” The work done was just as described and the finish was excellent. The whole of the underside of the car looks just like new. The worries I had about possible complications, mentioned by other establishments, in relation to the condition of the underside were examined by your very competent staff, discussed with me on site and my concerns negated.
The work was done within your estimated time frame and on budget.

I wish I had discovered your company sooner and I would have trusted all the work done on the car to present to “The MX5 Restorer”. Thank you for all your help and assistance. I am relaxed in the knowledge that my 16 year old MX5 now has many more years to run before returning to Pevensey for a Health Check.
