have said that it must be in the blood, our family have been connected
with panel beating since it first began.
My grandfather did it the hard way without using a wheeling
machine, shaping large sheets of metal with just sandbags, huge mallets
and minimal welding.
My father then carried on the tradition serving the majority of
apprenticeship at Hooper’s, I then
followed in their footsteps and
set up my own company.
From a very early age I was able to see and learn from other
peoples ideas, which put me in good stead for the future and gave a
wealth of contacts and experience.
As you can imagine I have had a lot to live up to.
have made parts for lorries and airplanes, paneled complete coaches, racing cars, built new fuel tanks and designed
complete cars from the chassis up.
