Body work on our conversions is done using hand formed steel. Fabricated panels are made using 1.0mm or 1.2mm Z/A sheet steel depending on their structural load. Rear corners of the cab on all our conversions have a 40mm round finish to give a high quality "factory" look to the back panel .All external seams are fully seam weld and carry the same lifetime structural guarantee as our chassis work. A vent is fitted to the rear of the cab to release air pressure when the doors are closed or the air conditioning is turned on . Internal bracing and box sections are spot welded in and all joins are fully sealed to prevent rust forming. After the welding is completed and the cab is prepared for paint we spray both inner and outer surfaces with a high quality two pack primer.

Painting of our conversions is completed using top quality two pack topcoat or clear over base depending on the original finish of your vehicle. Once painted we upholster the interior of all our conversions to match the original colours and format of the existing interior, usually this will mean a light coloured headlining felt from the window line up and a darker coloured carpet from the window down to the floor. The rear of the cab wall is sound proofed and Cavity wax is applied to the internal panel, seams and welds to prevent rust and then the trims and fittings are refitted and modified as necessary.

Finally the vehicles are completely reassembled and fitted with either a WBMB steel or AMA aluminum tray body .For the rear windows we fit a large tinted laminated window of our own design and each window is shaped to fit the body contours of each vehicle and the existing tint colour .Finally any optional extras and accessories are fitted before your newly converted vehicle is sent to a professional detailer to be cleaned and polished from top to toe.
