Welcome to Sids Paint Shop

Based in the West Midlands, Sids Paint Shop is a classic car restoration business with a fresh approach to the industry.

Our mantra is Quality, Transparency, and Honesty.

We understand that different clients have vastly different requirements.

Whether it’s a fully project managed hands-off concours restoration, or you fancy mucking in and helping us fix your car, we are happy to tailor make a package that works with you and your budget. So when we say “We’ll work with you” we actually mean it!

As the chief painter of the global hit TV show ‘Car Sos’, Sid has gathered together the cream of the UK’s classic car service providers to offer a selection like no other. In other words; our close friends just happen to be the world’s best in every aspect of car restoration! Pretty handy, when you’re obsessed with rebuilding cars.

Sid’s Paint Shop is also the garage of choice for Tim Shaw, who hosts Car Sos with Fuzz Townshend. As a car collector, Tim commissions us to do a full ‘nut and bolt’ rebuild of a different car every year. Last year, a Lancia Delta Integrale Evolution that was considered to be beyond restoration and therefore a ‘break for parts’ car. Not today



This year a similar condition 1965 Fastback Mustang.

A car that is undergoing what we think will be the UK’s most extensive transformation of such a car. Watch this space!

Other current restorations include;

  • An Escort RS Turbo (acid dip)
  • One of the first classic Jaguar E-types (acid dip)
  • Jenson Interceptor
