This thread is just to let people know, that i have moved, and have decided to concentrate more on repairing and polishing damaged stainless steel mouldings, hubcaps...and restoring hard to find parts for early mazdas.

No longer wrecking cars, have moved to a smaller shop, everything i have left is in boxes or at home, and needs to go eventually.


I also have new weber manifolds, gilmer drives, new Rx3 crossmembers ,flywheels and similar new performance parts available on request (no items will be kept at my shop to avoid theft, all items to be pre ordered and collected the next day) ........

All metal repair and polishing is done by me, but ill also organise chromeing,Plastic chromeing and die cast chromeing if need be.
bumper bars will also be done on request.


Image





Rx2 rear garnish panels
Rx3 12a nose cone moulds
hubcaps for all models
door and gaurd mirrors
air filters restored
window suround moulds
eye brow moulds (1300,rx4)
sill panel moulds
scuff plates (1300 ,323 R100 etc..)
window winder regulators repaired
10a rx3 headlight surounds and grille surounds........

also badges, grilles dash parts, etc

bring it down and show me, if i think i can fix it, ill do it!

my phone numbers remain the same, and ive only moved a couple of doors up, in the same industrial complex at chipping norton.


heres a few pics of some of the work for examples.



12a Rx3 nose cone mould
Image

R100 hubcaps....
these come up realy well. i repair, paint and polish the caps, then get the centre die cast rings rechromed, then use steve from signs in no times centres... they look great.
Image

Image

Image


rx3 10a surounds and grille.
these are a real bitch to repair and polish, as they are made out of a low grade pressed alloy material... they dont come up to bad, they are dificult to get a shine on, but they look a hell of a lot better than a battered nearly 40 year old set..
The black or gunmetal grey (depending on the year model of your car) is then painted in...

Image

Image

some hubcaps ....
Image

Rx3 headlight surounds...
Done in the original grey, or any colour...

Image

Image

Plastic gaurd mirrors re done

Image

Gilmer drives and small alloy engine parts at this stage...

Image




It is very dificult to repair damaged mouldings.
dont rock up with a 12a nose cone mould that has been on a car thats hit the wall at wsid, or a telegraph pole..

i will repair moulds within reason, some moulds or hubcaps are just to badly damaged to be done , so show them to me first, before asking for a price.

Please note, that i am a vintage mazda specialist, and will not waste my time and effort doing other model cars.

Mazdas only.





heres some pics of Mazdas ive done metal work , polishing and detail work on...

Nice work with thoes R100 hub caps, I wonder who owns them 8). Once again Thanks. Should put some photos of my guard Mirrors up that you restored,to show people what real R100 guard mirrors look like :)

Hope this side off the restore business goes well for you, as you know there is a great demand for someone to do this sort of work at a high quality and not being forced to buy cheap repo crap or second best second hand shit.

It should go ok bill. Ive always done this kind of work, but only recently decided to get serious with it.

My brother used to do alot of it to when he was with me to, but when he left , i didnt have time to do any of it...
now that im older, with a little more patience ive decided to get back into it.

I can vouch for Daves top quality work. Over the years he has repaired a number of bits and peices which I thought were ready for the bin.

Love those billet fuel filters, just wondering what size AN fittings they were and how much? Could you also get an overall OD of them?
