“Recommending to all...

A big thank you to Chris and the team I found this business one day going to lifford lane tip. I decided to pop in. I had a chat with Chris and could see some railings he had just had come back from the powder coaters. I could see they where high quality and powdered coated to a very high standard. So I asked Chris and his team to come and measure up for a security gate for my shop after a resent break in.

2 weeks later I have a strong gate that will last a long time to come. Blossoms Florist will be recommending to all friends, family & customers needing high quality gates and railings.

“Much Ado About Everything.”

In the spring of 2017 members of the ado16.info executive had a vision for ADO16 repair panels; we engaged with Chris Withers of Classic Sheetmetal and we were impressed. Chris displayed the utmost enthusiasm, he was clearly very skilful and knowledgeable, and most importantly he listened to what we wanted – Chris understood our needs, he made invaluable suggestions and it was clear his approach would be very flexible. Without hesitation, Chris bought into our plan to purchase a body shell; in fact Chris made it very clear that the facilities at Classic Sheetmetal would be available to help in whatever way possible to help develop an ado16.info panel re-manufacturing project.

In part inspired by our dealings with Chris and Classic Sheetmetal we purchased various panels and a complete body shell – listed on an asset register of ado16.info Limited, Chris became custodian of all in the summer of 2017 and set about using the body shell and panels as templates to manufacture panels for orders which started to come in during the autumn from our ado16.info club members around the world.

The speed at which Classic Sheetmetal satisfies confirmed orders for our club members is admirable, the quality and attention to detail is simply stunning whilst the prices are as reasonable and competitive as one could possibly imagine. Within ado16.info club circles feedback has been totally positive, indeed various members are singing high praise and already a healthy number of restoration projects are being completed to a standard that owners thought would not be possible – ado16.info has nothing but praise for Chris and Classic Sheetmetal.

The ado16.info panel project was recognised by Classic & Sports Car Magazine in November 2017 as runner-up in the Club Initiative of the Year Awards – an accolade which says as much about Classic Sheetmetal as it does about ado16.info – we could not have dreamed of developing such a partnership; under the leadership of Chris Withers, Classic Sheetmetal has become part of the ado16.info team – we could not offer a finer endorsement of the company!
