Mini lower door repair and new door skin fitted
Started on the mk2 escort today, front end delicately removed making sure to save the front wings. This escort is in incredible condition! A true survivor.
Hopefully digging the 100e back out in the summer months to spend the weekends getting as much done to this as I can 😍
Don’t forget we skim cylinder heads ( up to 4 cylinder) for just £45 all in!!!!! Our turn around time is usually 48hours and we can even skim motorcycle and scooter heads!!!!
Sorry for the lack of updates, extremely busy after moving shop we have just about set up everything ( just got to build an office & customer counter ) workshop is full with work and some very interesting jobs/cars to be done, 1 more week and Ill be full time 😃.
Also I’ve had to sell the Jaguar that was going to be a shop project..... I just don’t have the time for it at the moment and also I really need a 2 post ramp so the Jaguar is funding a new ramp which has been ordered and hopefully will be installed in the next month 🙂.
So it’s all go here in Clumpfab!
Happy new year everyone..... 😀
Well new year new start, sorry in advance if this is a long announcement but I would like to
Tell a story of the past year and the plans for the future.
We’ve now been trading for a whole year!
Starting from a small farm building with nothing but a welder, hammer & grinder! Putting all my savings and energy
I traveled all over the country collecting second hand machinery and tools in a clapped out old Vito van ( to be fair it never missed a beat even all the times it was overweight 😂) I even went to the Isle of Wight collecting some rollers. And from there Clumpfab was born! In the past year I have completed over 30 Car projects for customers, many sets of banded wheels, and countless cylinder head skimming and services, as well as loads of one off welding jobs for customers! And 100’s of repair panels through my eBay page.
All this whilst a covid pandemic has been going on.
Not many will be aware but I do have a full time job while doing all this! So Clumpfab has been limited to weekends and evenings and it’s fair to say I’m absolutely shattered! Working 7 days and nights the past year has really taken its toll..... BUT the end result this new year I’m in a much better workshop, bigger, cleaner & brighter! I have also taken the decision to hand my notice in with my current full time job so I can concentrate fully on Clumpfab & pushing the business to its full potential.
So new year plans,
From 1st February I’ll be running Clumpfab full time 8:30-5pm mon-Friday and Saturday by appointment.
I’ll be taking sundays off as a rest day...... well I’ll probably still be working but working on my own project 100e that’s now been taking a back seat for the past 4 years 😂
I already have a few interesting customers projects booked in and with there permission I’ll be posting plenty of updates on social media.
I keep getting messages about doing YouTube updates.... I’ve never had time before but I may consider it, but video quality won’t be great as I’m terrible with technology 😂, and it would be on one of my own projects as I wouldn’t want to take twice as long on customers cars with filming jobs, the options are ford 100e on an mx5 chassis ( but as there’s already a YouTuber that’s done this I don’t see much point on this ) or I have a Jaguar 1989 xj40.... I’d like to put a Mercedes 3L Diesel engine in this and loads of fabrication work 😉.
Clumpfab is still a way off being optimal there’s still machines and equipment I’d like to get to do more and exciting jobs, but this should happen all in good time .
Im really looking forward to working on all your projects out there, and I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone and all my customers for making this possible!
New sign up 😃
Happy Christmas everyone!!

Sierra project is now completed 🙂
These Vauxhall wheels look ace with a 2.5 inch band (10j) 👌
Update time! new workshop address release and new business cards have been made 😊
Not just cars we weld up, had this Lambretta scooter in for some minor repairs 👍
I was going to wait until January for the big announcement, but for 2 reasons I’ll post this now, first is we are super excited & second well.... we are just excited 🤩.
the next month we are finishing the pending jobs and then moving! We have a new larger workshop! Much brighter and cleaner and the most important thing is it’s much more easier to find! So please stick with us and I hope to see your projects next year.
P.s cylinder head services will still be running throughout December so if you need a skim please get in touch 😊

What do you think to the new stickers? Planing to give them out with all the welding jobs done to your cars/projects 😃
Photos from Clumpfab's post
Ford Sierra came in for some welding work, we are now half way through the project and it’s coming along very nicely
arch repair on the mighty Maude 🙂
A set of Volkswagen T5 wheels banded 👌
Another mx5 completed all the insides of any panels where painted to future proof for a long time to come 👌, all welded up as close to OE spec as possible
This is a previous customers car that we recently welded all new rear arches in, after the customer had it painted we fitted a roll cage for them. This little mx5 is now looking 👌👌
Another cylinder head skimmed here at clumpfab
We’ve got this customers mx5 in for some sills and arch rust repairs, it’s had some repair work in the past to the rear arches but unfortunately they’ve blocked the drain holes up and overlapped panels with no protection which has caused it to rust out again... on the plus side it’s going to be one solid mx5 when finished 👍
We are absolutely crazy busy at the moment but not to busy not to offer deals, so from October 1st until December 31st we are offering 10% off banding steel wheels!!!! And every order will get a free sticker too. 🤩
Don’t forget we offer a valve replacement service as well as all our other services, save yourself the time of the boring lapping in job and give us a go for very competitive prices!
Busy weekend, Had a friend Michael come help band some wheels for us while I was welding some patches on a classic range rover as well as some other welding work in between.
I’d also like to make a quick note as I’m taking loads of your calls regarding work, due to working in a busy and noisy workshop I often miss incoming phone calls, so if you are able to text me or message me on here regarding work would be much appreciated and easier to keep track, if you need to speak over the phone about work we can book a time slot where I can call you back to discuss. Thank you for all the support 👍
It’s a busy bank holiday weekend here at clumpfab, processing all the orders for chassis repair panels, I hope your all working on those project cars 🚗
Another cylinder head skimmed, give us a message for all your head skimming & crack testing needs
Some banded wheels perfected 👌 now all done in house
From £50 per wheel
Marcus’s ford all finished, another great video and a great working with Marcus and Maude!

'Maude' my moredoor Mk2 Escort is home! In this video me and Cat went down to collect her from Clumpfab, where she had been in the very talented hands of Chris Kember, for about a week.
I am over moon with Maude's new front end and I'm excited to get cracking on with all the mechanical stuff I have planned for her.
HUUUUGE thanks again to Chris for doing such an EPIC job! 👍
I highly recommend Clumpfab for any rust repair, restoration and fabrication needs you may have for your cars. He is also setup to do engine jobs such as; cylinder head skims, block decking, vlave re-lapping etc etc etc.
More videos coming soon! Thanks for everybody's continued support of my channel! 👍
We are now offering cylinder head sonic cleaning for just £25 per head!!
