Chassis corrosion is seen as a major worry when it comes to TVR ownership. It is true that, if left unattended, the chassis will deteriorate over time but isn't that a case for most things?
Of course, chassis strength is of utmost importance and we've seen them all. From the clean, waxoyled shiney, good as new to the down right dangerous with every variation in between.
why we are different
We do not quote for chassis repairs over the phone. There are too many variables. We prefer for the car to be put on the ramp to enable a full inspection to be done before decision are made as to how to proceed and this is done free of charge. Although outriggers are the usual part of the chassis to suffer, it may be that full replacement is not required and we are able to safely repair just those areas affected. When it comes to Griff, Chimaera and S, full outriggers can be replaced without the need to lift body or cut into the body shell.
