“I have been working closely with the Castleman team during the last one and a half years in relation to the nuts and bolts restoration of my Volvo P1800 from 1966. I have found the team to be very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. In my opinion they cover between themselves the skills required to take on classic car restoration jobs from demanding customers. From panel beating, bodywork and paint jobs to mechanical works. I have been particularly impressed with that they are always keen to do a job they can feel proud of – a rare quality in the automotive industry these days. I have very sadly had recent experience of this as I have previously commissioned restoration work with two other firms in Poole and been very disappointed. It has therefore been very refreshing to work with Clint and the team instead…”
