TRGB's workshop has been going as long as the company, it all started with Richard Dempster helping Gary build the first workshop, sort of part-time help, as he was between jobs. That was in 1986 and he still works here! Prior to working for TRGB he had restored several cars at home, including a Spitfire, a GT6, E type Jaguar,TR6, Healy 3000 and several TR5'S. He tends still to have some project or other on the go at home, and has probably restored more TR5'S than anyone else in the world.(including here and at home) Richard's expertise with Triumphs has developed over many years of "hands-on" experience, although his degree in mechanical engineering does come in handy now and again!
Richards' combined knowledge on panel fit, and obtaining that elusive door gap to the correct size, is second to none. All major TR chassis work is carried out on our fully equipped jig, which we can repair or fully rebuild all TR2/3/4/5/6 chassis on. Customers can view the work in progress at any time.
Jason joined the team at the start of 2011 and already it seems like he has been here for years. His extensive and wide range of experience on other classics as well as the TR range has already proved a great asset. He is a man who is never happier than with a spanner in his hand!
TRGB has now extended it's range of services within the workshop and have now gained considerable experience on working and/or restoring the following Marques: Ferrari Dino 246, Austin Healy 3000, E type jaguar, both 4.2 and V12. Ferrari 308, Mercedes 190SL as well as our more usual TRIUMPH range. Call us if you have a classic that needs attention,we understand old cars! TRGB's workshop will also of course carry out ANY Triumph work - from a simple service to a full-blown "body off chassis" restoration to the highest standard. All TR engines are built in-house, something we seem to be getting an especially good reputation for. We can improve performance, road holding, handling and braking to suite your requirements and budget.
We welcome stage payments on restoration work and give fully detailed estimates and Rebuild from the bottom up bills on all work carried out. Estimates are free, we will even travel to your home free of charge (within a 50 mile radius) on all major restoration estimates. We can arrange collection and delivery to anywhere in Europe, our labour rate at £59.00 per hour plus VAT is usually MUCH cheaper than most European countries.
All our work and parts are warranted, we aim to make cars as reliable as possible - after all, we love our Triumphs just as much as you do!
