About Prestige Paintworks  To visit website

Initial experience of vehicle repair work came from working at bodyshops and accident repair centres in and around Eastbourne since leaving school in 1983, including a 9 year period at a BMW approved bodyshop .

Growing tired of the end result being focussed on numbers and units and not so much about quality and pride, branching out independently seemed more ‘when' ? rather than if.. !!

The company was born from over 25 years of experience in panel beating and painting, and with a methodical, detailed and thorough work ethic, 2009 seemed like the right time to set up Prestige Paintworks.

What we do …

Specialising in Classic , Prestige and Historic vehicles , Prestige Paintworks will undertake all aspects of vehicle body and paintwork restoration.

From an accident repair (insurance or otherwise) to a complete body off restoration, and everything in between. It doesn’t matter how big or small the customers requirements are , we will take care of it.  We also carry out pre–purchase inspections, with the aid of a borescope we can check cavities and box sections for excessive corrosion or damage, and with our experience we can tell a good job from a botched one, or a good paint job to a cheap blow over giving you a better picture of the vehicle you are looking at purchasing.

Everything is done in-house and what cannot be done by us the customer is made well aware of,  so when your prized possession is dropped off it won’t leave the premises until it’s ready to collect. Customers are welcomed to ‘pop in when passing, the kettle is always on'!

All painting is carried out in a low bake oven, and we mix our own paint, we don’t buy it in. All work is detailed and photographed, larger restorations have progress reports emailed to customers on a regular basis . I believe communication is everything .

As a reflection of how we work at Prestige Paintworks, we have been trusted with some truly fantastic cars , pre war Auto Union , Mercedes and Bugatti grand prix cars to Porsche 910 or Aston Martin DBR9 GT2 Le Mans cars , even Graham Hills Monaco grand prix winning Lotus 16 has been painted by us .

You can be assured your car is in good care
