Please find below some examples of recent body and paintwork that has been undertaken by MCE. For minor exterior bodywork, repaint or rust repairs we can prepare the vehicle complete with engine, chassis systems and interior still installed, and only glass and ancillaries removed to ensure a high quality, detailed finish. For more major structural repair we use Celette jigs and fixtures, coupled with a rotisserie for access to those hard-to-reach areas for media blasting back to bare metal and applying complete sealing and surface protection solutions. We also have an on-site fully climate-controlled spray booth so we can minimise bare-metal exposure time and maintain a clean, dry shell between strip, new metal fabrication, anti-rust treatment and base-coat paint application.
We also offer an in-house Fuchs wheel restoration facility to bring classic Porsche forged aluminium wheels back to their original factory condition.

We can take your damaged or aged original Fuchs rims and restore them to either 'original' or 'mint' condition. We make a distinction between the two as the early rims came from the factory in a relavely rough condition by modern standards. Forging and machine marks were often still present at the sides of the petals and the post-anodised surface still showed polishing marks. Many of these wheels get over-restored in their life and these marks are lost by restorers believing they are doing the right thing by making the wheel look as flawless as possible.
At MCE we offer customers the option to have the wheel restored to a level that preserves their unique manufacturing marks in-period, or restored to a mint condition standard. Using original, reference wheels held on-site at MCE, we first fully strip and then polish to the standard required.
Wheel then requires clear anodising.
Final stages: paint and assembly.
