Coach building

Specialists

We have more than 30 years of coach building experience and we are experts in aluminium panel beating and fabrication of anything from discontinued panels to full bodies from sheet metal. Follow the progress of past projects below and watch the transformation of sheet aluminium into the rear wing of an Aston Martin DB2/4 or the door skin of a Maserati 3500 GT.

Our team's repertoire...

“Grandstand undertook a bare metal re-spray and re-commissioned the car involving considerable electrical and some mechanical work. The resulting paintwork standard is fantastic and a number of panel fit defects from the original rebuild were corrected to an exacting standard.”

Jaguar E-Type Restoration and Respray Customer, 2019

Process

Restoring cars of this calibre to concours standard is a labour of love. Every part of the metal work and fabrication, mechanics and bodywork can be carried out in-house by our specialist team.  The car is stripped down and the chassis and body panels are meticulously restored in our metal shop, engines and suspension systems are rebuilt in our mechanics bays and the entire car body is prepared and resprayed in our body shop.  Parts are labelled and archived meticulously and, once the car is ready to be reassembled, all its respective parts come together once again.  The car is finally put through testing before returning it to the customer, complete with a fully documented restoration report and photographic record.

JAGUAR E-TYPE

Enzo Ferrari was famously quoted as calling the Jaguar E-Type "the most beautiful car ever made" on its launch in 1961.

Reviving cars that have been badly corroded or are in need of substantial restoration requires a thorough knowledge of their monocoque construction.

Our team at Grandstand Coachworks are Jaguar restoration specialists, having worked on numerous E-Types and other Jaguars, from fettling panel gaps and shut lines through to ground-up restorations.

The name Aston Martin is synonymous with beautiful classic and sports cars. Appreciating in value year-on-year, the classic Aston Martin DB series are a restoration project worth getting right.

Our team at Grandstand Coachworks have restored and re-built Aston Martin classics for more than 30 years which is why they have become one of our specialities.
