Why a new body shell was more cost effective

Here you can see the extent of work that is required on the existing body shell of our MGBGT.

We are never put off by the amount of bodywork that is required on a restoration. At the end of the day, we are restoration specialists so no task is ever too daunting but we always consider our customer’s purse strings; our time in labour is not always the most cost effective option!

This is a prime example of why a new body shell for our 1968 MGBGT restoration was by far the better option.
