    cateram chassis repair?

    My mot man has bent the chassis on his cateram and needs it rebuilt/jigged etc.
    any thoughts on where or who would do this for him, he has the number of someone in birmingham but would ideally like somewhere closer? is in ipswich so east anglia would be nice?

    Any thoughts on this ?

    Try Spyder Engineering (for repairs)

    Classic Car Restoration, Chassis Replacement And Suspension Repairs - SpyderCars, Cambridgeshire UK

    Think a company called Arch Motors make the chassis for Caterham

    a new chassis might not be that expensive though

    Just how bent is it? Many parts can be replaced singularly. The older chassis were all brazed, the newer versions were M.I.G. welded. As above, Arch supply repair sections, long and short fronts etc etc. The biggest addition to cost would be if the skin needs to come off, as it is part of the strength of the chassis.
