“All cars are exactly the same, except for they are all different”
Tubular chassis’s with lightweight aluminium body panels, monocoque chassis’s, Carbon tubs, steel panels, fibreglass, Carbon, Kevlar, welding, riveting, bonding…. the list is endless.
Over the decades, car construction has evolved and many different techniques and materials have been introduced and perfected in the production of the motor car.
Restoring a sports car from the 50’s requires a different approach in terms of materials and technique than say a supercar of the 90’s and beyond.
Whereas a 1950’s classic might require a flat sheet of aluminium, which is then skilfully worked into a perfectly shaped piece of intricate bodywork by a skilled artisan on an old English wheel, a 1990’s supercar will need a perfectly formed and absolutely precise carbon fibre piece of bodywork which is manufactured using the latest technology.
Whatever the era of the car being restored, renovated or repaired, the goal of the Moto Technique team is always the same, and that is to produce the highest quality standard of workmanship and finish available anywhere.
If a car comes to Moto Technique for repair or restoration, it is more than likely that at some stage it will be checked on the in-house alignment jig.
In the right hands, this amazing piece of equipment not only checks the alignment of what the car is when it arrives, but it also tells you what it should be according to the manufactures specifications. All cars are fully aligned before the start of any restoration, and all crash repairs leave in perfect condition, thanks to the technicians and their masterful understanding and ability to use this tool to its full potential.
Unfortunately, not all the cars that arrive at Moto Technique are there for a voluntary visit, occasionally accidents happen and many beautiful cars enter the workshop in a state that leaves a lot to be desired. Thankfully, with the abundance of talent, technique and facilities available at Moto Technique, there is always a happy outcome.
A totally invaluable piece of equipment that is used extensively to produce perfect results.
