Restoration and renovation of classic and race cars by Kai Barnett

We love classic cars. And embrace the often very daunting challenge of restoring them to their former glory. We have also worked on aircraft restoration projects too.

We work on Porsche, Jaguar, AstonMartin, Ferrari, McLaren cars

Our engineering experience started with building and racing classic rally cars. We have worked on, raced and restored a wide variety of classic and race cars of all ages.

Have a classic car renovation project?
we can do it right.

We are a small and very specialised renovation shop for classic and race cars which means we can really focus on the projects at hand.

Our decades of know how and contacts in the specialist and classic car business means we have built up a network of the very best parts suppliers and engineers.

Discussion and communication

For all our work undertaken, whether it is for aeroplane maintenance and servicing, a classic car renovation project or a race car preparation, we discuss all aspects of the work and communicate with the client in great details. we understand the costs involved, and the value of our customer's investment and so we make talking about the nitty-gritty a priority.

Project management

We cannot do every aspect of a restoration project, so a big part of our job is project management. Where we cannot do the work ourselves we find the best sub-contractors for the job, and upon the client's consent we oversee all their work throughout.

Realistic timelines and targets

We work to realistic timelines and project delivery deadline. Our experience has taught us that in classic car renovation nothing happens fast, if it can go wrong it will and that everything takes so much longer than first estimated. We don't give false promises for any project we undertake and communicate the progress of projects at any every stage.

Team Leader

The passion for cars, planes and engines has been there since before he could walk. Kai discovered flying with paragliding back in the first days of the sports, and graduation to powered flight was a logical step. His work as a mechanic and support crew for rally sports car race teams has taken Kai around the world. Kai flies and maintains his own gyro-copter, and always has a classic car project or two on the go.
He is an approved engineer with the Civil Aviation Authority and the Light Aircraft Association.

"Movement is tranquillity"
The guy to count on for all my gyro servicing and maintenance needs. He is the key to keeping me flying and I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have looking after my aircraft.

Gyrocopter Maintenance

I won't let anyone else touch my gyro and light aircraft mechanics. He always does more than just the task in hand to keep me safely in the air.
Simon Simon

Gyrocopter Servicing

We always want Kai in the pits when we are racing our classic cars. His support has helped us to the podium on several occasions. A key team member.
