  • I had been looking for an original white S1 for a couple of years, when I came across a restoration project advertised at Stocks in May 2014. I went up and bought it on sight and Mark and his team then spent 7 months fully restoring the car back to its original factory spec. Mark kept me updated every step of the way with pictures and emails and happily tolerated my obsession with authenticity. The end result was outstanding, underlined when Mike Kimberley awarded it the Best in Class award at the 2016 Lotus Forums International Lotus Day Concours event at Brooklands. I cannot recommend Stocks highly enough - the work Mark and his team did on my car was second to none.

  • After seeing the quality of their previous work and knowing how important it is to prepare fibreglass cars properly when painting them, I booked my Esprit S1 in for a total respray. Mark and his team took the shell completely back to gelcoat and painted the car in its original colour code orange. They kept me informed along the way with photo updates at every stage and the end result was outstanding. Attention to minute detail like the black trim lines was followed accurately. Very pleased. Thanks guys - to top it all, the car won the Concours trophy at the TheLotusForums annual event this year !!

  • Mark and his team have done a few repairs for us now and each one has been first class and a perfect colour match which is very hard to achieve. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and we will continue to use him for all our bodywork requirements in the future.

  • Car literally looks like new! Very pleased and worth the extra £s deserving of a car of this nature. Mark is clearly a trust worthy guy and in this for the long term so customer service was excellent

  • Mark and his team re sprayed the front bonnet and bumper of my 911 997. I'm fussy so expected an 'as new' job and can say the result has been outstanding. Car literally looks like new! Very pleased and worth the extra £s deserving of a car of this nature. Mark is clearly a trust worthy guy and in this for the long term so customer service was excellent - he threw in a couple of small jobs for free. Would definitely recommend and use again.

  • Mark and his team resprayed my 1974 Lotus Elite and the finished work is outstanding. Although there was a lot of work involved Mark kept me informed through the whole process and as I was on a budget he kept as close to it as possible. I am very happy with the result! I will definatley use them again for my next Lotus project.

  • The colour match was spot on and there is no evidence of a repair having been made. I was well impressed and would recommend this garage. I would use them again if I needed to. The price was also sensible for the work carried out. Well done guys.

  • Mark and the guys have done a great job of body restoration on our AC3000ME . The car was AC's development vehicle and is the oldest surviving 3000ME. I particularly wanted parts repaired rather than replaced to maintain originality and thanks to their skill and knowledge of GRP this has been achieved. Mark has kept us informed with regular updates and advice on what has been a pretty involved project. The car looks wonderful. A great job.

  • Theres a saying which says, "you cant make a silk purse out of a pigs ear" well thats not entirely true as mark and his team just did that on my Esprit! From what the car looked like to what it looks like now is truely amazing. When i turned up at the workshop mark told me it was one of the worst cars hes seen, but when he said lets unload it i was pretty relieved. Thanks to Mark and his team.

  • I had several quotes for a re-spray on my 1971 Elan Sprint. I particularly wanted someone experienced in glass fibre bodywork, prep and re-spray. I visited Mark and told him that I would do all rubbing down to the base glass fibre and would also carry out repairs as required. Mark said that he would in fact do all the necessary repairs.

    Mark kept me informed of the progress and supplied photos via email. The Elan Sprint is a small car, but one that requires attention to paint lines and colour detail in certain areas to replicate the factory colour scheme. Many so-called professional paint specialist do not appreciate this, Mark painted the car to perfection. I can recommend Stocks Coachworks to any one with a glass fibre bodied car, excellent work, and excellent service.

  • I spent much time looking for the right place to respray my Esprit. When I finally approached Mark and his team they were nothing but helpful, knowledgeable and professional. The quality of the work was second to none and I was like a kid at Christmas when I saw the glass like finish. Well done everyone!

  • I did some research and visited several other garages before deciding that Stocks coachworks was were I wanted to leave my car, I absolutely made the right decision by leaving it with Mark. He's done a superb job and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a job done properly. Thank you.

  • Mark provided an excellent service. He looked after my pride and joy as only a professional would. At one point, just as i was due to collect the car, he pointed out he was not happy with the end result and needed the car for a further 2 weeks. This was exactly what i was looking for. Mark comes highly recommended and is always happy to provide sound advice.(See pictures in the gallery of Dax Cobra).

  • Mark and his team did an excellent job at a very good price, and the car now looks better than when I bought it. Mark kept me updated as work progressed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any paint or body work jobs. Many thanks!
