    Hi all,

    Anybody have experience with this company near Navan?
    I've been speaking to them about blasting and welding my classic. Just wondered if anyone has any feedback.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you go with them? I was in contact with them about my classic today, waiting to hear back...

    Not yet.
    I've spoken to them and got quotes. They sound like they know what they're doing. I'm reluctant to go ahead with it without hearing first hand experience!

    From looking at their videos the quality of work doesn't seem great.

    They’ve loads and loads of Facebook videos and seem to be improving their facilities and quality of work . However they are just welding in sheet metal and wouldn’t be into replicating strengthening lines and stamping, but horses for courses depending on how precious the vehicle is. So they’d be grand for extending the life of a workhorse, which seems to be their bread and butter.

    Can anybody recommend someone that would do welding on a classic?
    Most bodyshop / crash repair type places don't want to know!

    I'm Westmeath area so ideally within an hour or so.

    Got prices back today and their way over my budget... wanted double plus more than another quote I got 😅

    I never heard of them but looked at the website some utter bollox jumps out. According to them "almost every" 10-15 year old car needs welding. The solution to this is you pay them for a rust treatment (which includes abrasive blasting :eek:) on your car when it is New/1-3 years old and seemingly every 5-10 years after that.

    Yes..

    I know people who have used him for classic repairs, and see his work passing my house very frequently.

    Class work.
