Vehicle Welding & Fabrication
Most vehicles have steel sections that get exposed to the elements. The oxidisation of this steel will create rust deposits, leading to deterioration of the framework of the vehicle over time.
Cars with excessive rust in structural sections will become potentially unsafe and will fail their MOT tests.
We can perform welding on most parts of a car chassis and components. Our mechanics are fully qualified in welding and fabrication, with excellent skills in restoring the structural safety of all brands of car.
If necessary, we can fabricate metal shapes to replace larger sections of damaged or corroded chassis or exhaust. Areas we can repair include:
- Door frames
- Suspension supports
- Component supports
- Large rust areas

Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is often known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and is the most common welding process. An electric arc forms between two pieces of metal and a continuously feeding electrode. This heats the metal(s), causing them to melt and join.
When the welding electrode is active, a shielding gas feeds through the welding gun, preventing contaminants in the air entering the weld.
MIG Welding is popular for automotive steel welds due to its speed and relatively inexpensive consumable components. The downside is that welds can sometimes look less tidy than other, more involving methods.
Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, often referred to as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), is a welding process that uses a fixed tungsten electrode to produce the weld.
An inert gas (argon or helium) protects the weld from oxidation and contamination. Electrical energy is conducted across the two metal pieces through highly ionised gas and metal vapours (known as a plasma), creating a strong join.
TIG Welding is mainly used to weld together thin sections of stainless steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, magnesium, and copper. TIG Welding is slower and more complex than MIG Welding, but allows for better control over the resulting joins.
Do you perform welding on all vehicle brands?
Yes, as long as your car has steel components, we weld all brands of vehicle, including:
