Automotive Metal Shaping, Forming, and Panel Fabrication

At Finch Restorations, we are experts in the creation of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling a variety of sheet metals. Our materials include steel, aluminium, brass, and stainless steel, tailored to meet the needs of automotive restoration, aircraft restoration, custom car creation, and motorcycle building.

Panels and Guards with Complex Curves

Finch Restorations can build almost any panel that a project may require; whether it is a simple battery tray to a full body. We produce panels and guards featuring complex compound curves and surfaces. Our processes involve precision cutting, bending, and welding the metal into the desired shape, using an array of specialized tools.

Our Toolset Includes:

  • Press Brakes
  • English Wheels
  • Nibblers
  • Power Hammers
  • Louvre Presses
  • Shrinkers/Stretchers
  • Swaging Machines
  • Tree Stumps, Anvils, Dollies
  • Shot Bags
  • Manual Planishing Hammers

Cost-Effective Metal Shaping Solutions

Metal shaping is often a more cost-effective method to replace rather than repair badly rusted panels. We utilise the existing structure as a template, or employ cutting-edge 3D laser scanning and full-size 3D bucks for precision creation.

Welding Expertise

Our welding processes, including MIG, TIG, and brazing, ensure strong, durable, and aesthetically pleasing results. We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and attention to detail in every project.
