Thanks for stopping by!
Originally from Cardiff, Wales, I relocated to the USA in 1987, and run a small auto woodwork restoration business from my home in central Florida. My wife and I have been married since 1996, and we have 5 beautiful daughters to keep us on our toes.
I purchased my first Jaguar in 1986 -- actually spotted it for sale in a field while at Beaulieu Jaguar Drivers meet (National Motor Museum in the UK). A dark blue 1967 3.4 litre S-Type, with wire wheels and manual/overdrive transmission. What more could a 19 year old want! This car was the spark that got me involved the woodwork restoration profession, along with a Triumph Spitfire and an XJ6 that followed shortly after.
Over the years, I've worked with many classic car restorers, main dealers and parts supply houses such as; Collier Jaguar, Classic Rolls Royce Service, GRK Rolls Royce Interiors, XK's Unlimited, Paul's Jaguar Parts, Vantage Sports cars, Wirewheel.com, Classic Showcase, The Driven Man, Thoroughbred Motors & Coventry West ..to name but a few.
I prefer to make the accessories to order, so in that respect, the online platform is a perfect fit for me. Typically, these take around 5-10 days, and the ever popular XJS console panels 10-14 days. General dashboard restorations.. usually 2-3 weeks. As with any business, especially a sole proprietorship, there can be bottlenecks in workload and unforeseen delays, but I do try my best to keep things within these parameters.
If there's anything British Car related I can help you with, please don't hesitate to get in touch. If I can't help, then it's likely that I'll know someone who can.
A very big "thank you" for your continued patronage, it certainly means a great deal to us. I hope you enjoy these old photos from years gone by 🙂
