It doesn’t matter what stage of need your car is in, The Surgery can return your classic to its former beauty for you. We’re happy to provide full project management, or partial management with referral to our proven networks for clients wanting more “hands on” input.

Chassis Restoration

A total restoration normally requires separating the vehicles body from the chassis. Once the chassis is free of rust corrosion, rust proofing coatings can be applied to ensure its longevity. We aim to restore the chassis to its original factory state or better, achieving a world class finish.

Fabrication & Metalwork

We ensure that our metalwork is of the highest quality. Where possible we keep all the original panels, if unable we can produce an exact replica using sheet metal. Rolled by our expert craftsmen to appear as if they are from the original car.

Rust Repair & Rustproofing

We provide a complete rustproofing service to protect your vehicle from the damaging and expensive effects of rust. It will also halt the progression of existing rust. All our treatments give you the peace of mind that your car is well protected. Our full treatments come with a full guarantee.

Additional Restorations Services

Electrics

An essential part of classic motoring, it is imperative that the vehicles electrical systems components and looms are in peak condition. With decades of experience, Warren Classics can fault find, repair and even reconstruct and replace. Whether it’s a small fault, or part of a restoration, we can undertake electrical work to the very best standards.

Engine and Drivetrain

Every car is only as good as its engine and to fully restore a classic car we use our expert craftsmen to reconstruct the engine as the designer originally intended. We match the original specifications of the engine and drivetrain so the car feels just like when it first pulled out the showroom. We are also able to give advice and undertake modifications and upgrades, both for fast road and track use.
