The portraits of the Panel Shop staff 2009–12
All bodywork defects are expertly repaired by the team of experts in Auto Restorations’ autobody panel shop. New panels are made up in steel or aluminium, repair patches are welded in place. Louvres can be made in engine bonnets. With a close eye to the fit and finish of their work, doors, boot lids and bonnets are expertly fitted to achieve perfect alignment and even gaps, one of the more challenging aspects of automobile restoration.
Informal portraits of their employees on their redesigned website, and capabilities brochure in print helped Auto Restorations transform from a faceless company to people that their customers can relate to. The highly specialised, high value personal service that Auto Restorations’ workforce offer to customers is an advantage that they have over large companies, their multiple international Concours D’Elegance awards attest to this. Good photos of their skilled workforce reinforce this.
These photos were shot and photo composites produced 2009–2012, they offer a historical profile of Auto Restorations during that time soon after Allan Wylie stepped up from the Mechanical Shop floor to the role of General Manager.
