The quality of all the work done has been outstanding

My Mazda MX5 has been a special part of my family since it was new in 1991. Unfortunately, 27 years and 118,000 miles had taken their toll and by November 2018 the car was in need of some serious care

Sills, rear wheel arches and front wings were all a bit ‘crusty’ and the car was also in need of some mechanical improvements.
I went to speak to Dave and Mark at Malton Coachworks to talk through a programme of work involving repairs to the mechanics and body.

I was advised that the car needed a full rebuild of the suspension with poly bushes, a new steering rack and new exhaust system. A full service and detailing of the engine and engine bay were also added to the list. Bodily, the car required new front wings (genuine parts were to be used), new sills and repair sections in the rear wheel arches. The car was then to be resprayed in its original colour of Classic Red and rustproofed extensively to ensure that it would last for many years to come. I was given a quotation for all this work and agreed for it to be done.
I cannot praise Dave and Mark too highly. The quality of all the work done has been outstanding. They constantly kept me updated with details and photos. of the work that had been completed and the finished car is simply spectacular. The car looks fabulous, the panel gaps are perfect and the paint is as good as its 1991 factory finish. It also drives like the car that it had been for so many years. Over the past couple of years the car had lost some of its wonderful MX5 sparkle but that has all been put back into the car in abundance and it now delivers that very special MX5 Mk1 driving experience.
Thanks Dave, thanks Mark and a huge thank you to all members of your teams. Everyone was so friendly to deal with and VERY professional at all times.
I am so pleased that I decided to trust Malton Coachworks to return my MX5 to its former glory.
