Mitchell Motors - Classic car paintwork and restoration specialist


Mitchell Motors are specialists in classic car restoration and work on all types of vehicles including ACs, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Bristols, Bugattis, Frazer Nash, Delage, Lancia, BMW and many more. All of our bodywork is carried out in-house and as well as our traditional methods we utilise innovative technology whenever we can.

Vehicle Spray Painting

We acheive a quality of finish in our paint spray booths that is second to none.

Two climate-controlled spray booths

If Mitchell Motors had to pick one aspect of classic car restoration and repair that we excelled at and enjoyed the most, it would be the standard of our paintwork.

Great news for you! The quality of a finished paint job is largely dependent on two factors, the quality of the bodywork and the quality of preparation that we have achieved prior to the paint being applied.

Our vehicle paint work is highly regarded and even though it has won various awards at events nationwide, we do not believe in resting on our laurels and always continue to strive for improvements.

Our latest improvement was the major investment in a new spray booth, to complement the top of the range DuPont paint products that we use:

The environment within the booth is climate-controlled and heated to ensure the best possible adhesion of the paint to the vehicle surface.

Air is constantly filtered, so dust is extracted and otherwise resulting paint blemishes reduced dramatically.

Painting and the environment

We are also concerned about the effects that solvent based paint can have on the environment.

We do retain the ability to use solvent based paints, which we understand some clients prefer. However, having tried and tested new water based DuPont products numerous times, we would recommend them as they are much kinder to the environment and have no downside to final paint finish.

In fact, water-based paints give a flatter finish than solvent based paints.

We have been asked in the past to hand-paint cars as they would have originally been finished. The booth can even help with this painting method due to its climate control and dust extraction features which helps to avoid unwelcome imperfections.
