Favourite job: “I like the story behind the Morris 8 we re-trimmed, the owner bought it as a 15 year old for £30 in 1953, our work provided the finishing touches to a restoration he had waited virtually his whole life to complete”.

Favourite job: "There are so many to choose from! Having been trimming since I left school, it's very difficult to pick just one. Every classic car has it's own personality and provides its own unique challenge. The long process of having to make a pattern and adapt it until its right and then seeing the finished result, makes the hard work worth while."

Favourite job: “Its got to be the first full retrim I did with Vamped. Seeing the difference from when the car arrived and then when it left was truly amazing. Being involved in the process of restoring a classic car has always been a dream of mine ever since I was little, whether it was my own or through my future job, and now I see it everyday."
