Body­mods is a fam­ily business es­tab­lished in 2007. Paul Duff is a qual­i­fied panel beater and crash re­pairer, with a pas­sion for fab­ri­ca­tion and met­al­work­ing and over 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the automotive in­dus­try.

Do­ing his apprenticeship and con­cen­trat­ing on crash re­pairs prior to be­com­ing a fab­ri­ca­tor gave Paul the abil­ity to straighten all chas­sis and com­po­nen­try to en­sure that he’s start­ing from the fresh­est plat­form.

Since begin­ning trad­ing nine years ago, the Body­mods team has be­come very dis­tinc­tive in its ap­proach to restora­tion, fab­ri­ca­tion, and mod­i­fi­ca­tion. Body­mods proudly boasts well over 40,000 hours of hands-on, body-re­lated met­al­work, in­clud­ing some ex­tremely large builds — such as fully hand­made coach-built bod­ies.

Body­mods is unique in its abil­ity to run as much two me­tres of con­tin­u­ous TIG weld through thin-gauge flat pan­els with­out any dis­tor­tion is­sues.

Body­mods’ work­load is based largely on word of mouth, and it works with a very solid client base of both re­peat and new cus­tomers.

If your ve­hi­cle needs re­pair be­fore it is re­stored, Body­mods is able to do this at the bare-metal phase. Us­ing its skills and ex­pe­ri­ence, com­bined with tra­di­tional fab­ri­ca­tion meth­ods, its staff are able to un­der­take: • struc­tural re­pairs • dent re­pairs • rust re­pairs • chas­sis re­pairs • hand-mak­ing pan­els.

Body­mods re­places metal with metal, avoid­ing filler or bog to make a cos­metic re­pair, to re­turn the ve­hi­cle to an orig­i­nal state that is safe and long last­ing.
