I would like to say that Adrian, Andy and the team have pulled it off once again. I bought a 2001 Chimaera 4.5 two years ago in lovely original condition, as I wanted the best out there. I decided a year ago that a crease in the leather, a chip on the paintwork, or any other minor defects you would expect to find on a 25000 mile car, was not good enough. Adrian and CENTRAL TVR took my car and said "trust us and we will give you back the dream car you want".
Well that was a understatement as you can see a full restoration inside and out Paint, interior, roof and anything else you could wish for was undertaken and the car now looks like it did when it left Blackpool in 2001. Thanks again to to all at CENTRAL TVR
A big thank you to Adrian & his crew for repairing my beloved Tuscan after it was rear ended. As you can imagine, I was heartbroken & thought the car was never going to be the same again. However, the lads worked their magic & the car is all fixed & much to my delight, it really is as good as new. My car has an unusual chameleon paint job & I was concerned that it would be difficult to get a good colour match but I needn’t have worried as it came out perfectly. If unfortunately you find yourself in my position & your TVR needs some TLC, then I can thoroughly recommend Central TVR to take care of it. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Many thanks to Adrian & his boys.
Adrian and Andy and their team pulled out all the stops to help my good lady and I present our cherished Tuscan Mk1, the star of the show, at the RM Sgt mess 'Casino Royale' themed summer ball in Plymouth. As with anything military, timing was of the essence, and I was given no quarter for delay. The interior of the car was looking a little tired, so in order to show her at her best I chose to give her a "make over" - my wife's current, favourite, phrase of the day.
After reading the reviews, and thanks to all you passionate TVR folk for taking the time to write them, I phoned Adrian to ask if he could meet a tight deadline and have the car ready for a specific date.
Not only did Adrian say yes, he said he "would relish the challenge" (very rare to hear these days), and boy did I give him one! What started off as an interior make over ended up a full re-carpet, full leather interior, doors, roof, front-end repaint, wheel refurb and caliper paint.
After driving the car up from Sussex I met Andy (on his day off) and we sat in the car and went over things in minute detail. Once Andy was happy that I was happy he drove me to the station. Top bloke Andy! Over a matter of a few weeks, and against all the odds, these boys proved themselves to be true TVR enthusiasts and dedicated professionals. The end result: let the
pictures speak for themselves.
A massive thanks guys :)
Dear Adrian and Andy
We have just taken the car out for a blast to see how she starts with the new starter motor. She fires up a lot more promptly now when hot, of course you need to be ready with a touch of gas to ensure she doesn't stall straightaway. Something you forget with our eco boxes of today!
We would like to thank you for supplying such a wonderful example. But are more than pleased with your help and knowledge with getting the niggles sorted.
We highly recommend you and your team to anyone needing any TVR related work!!
Hope your team keep going and help keep the TVR's remaining on the road.
A very proud and almost 80 year old TVR owner.
Thanks and kind regards

Dear Adrian & team,
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your team for working on my car.
Making the decision to give you full control over my car was scary at the time, but also reassuring in a way, because I knew that my car was in good hands with you and your team.
The results were truly phenomenal, I absolutely did not expect my car to come back looking as exceptional as it did. Both you and your team really out did yourself.
Many thanks to you, and your team for the superb job on my interior refurbishment. The new carpets are first class and just the colour that I wanted. The seats far exceed my expectations and the quality of the work is outstanding. The maroon stitching shows them off to a 'T'.
Finally, although a small touch, the new door cards are the icing on the cake. I am so pleased that you persuaded me to go for that change.
You all have made my lovely car even better. Your enthusiasm and advice have been so important in ensuring this project was a
success. Also every member of your team loves my car as much as I do.
Thank you all so much.
Our 4L Griffith was 20 years old this year so it was time for a bit of a refurbishment. Adrian and his team at Central TVR did a fantastic job which included re-laminated dash, new carpet set, replacement roof, 7" lights, and new wing mirrors. The stars of the show are the new Tuscan seats, which are fabulous. The old Griffith seats were always a weak point of the car and these new ones combine spectacular looks with a much enhanced driving position with great side support.
The quality of the work is exceptional and Adrian takes great care to ensure all the customer's requirements are clearly understood and executed. His love of these cars is clear. I would unreservedly recommend Central for any TVR work.

Just a wee thanks again for the outstanding job.
I booked my Tuscan 2 in for some upgrades inside and out and could not be more
satisfied with the quality of craftsmanship and advice for Adrian, Andy and co :) Full re-carpet, mechanical, geometry, electrics and paintwork, all immaculate. Their experience and attention to detail far exceeded my expectations as did the result of their work. Genuinely gobsmacked when I went back to Central TVR to collect. Couldn't praise more highly. Please open up a workshop in Scotland! :)
Great guys, great job.
Sincerest and many thanks again

Their Query: A big thank you to Adrian, Andy and the team
for bringing my 500 griff back to life.
I knew of Adrian from many years back when he was in
Birmingham during the wedge years.
Travelling back from a weekend away in North Wales on October 13, the griffdecided to remind me who is the boss by tucking into the Armco just outside Shrewsbury. Getting out the vehicle shaken and looking back at the result I feared the worst and another griff was lost.
Home safe and speaking to Aviva who were great, they asked who I would like to assess the car
to see if life could be restored. Only one came to mind Central TVR If anyone
could save it Ade could. A few calls and it was collected and damage assessed.
Now, you have to trust Adrian and Andy on what can and can't be done. To me it looked terminal.
The words, No Problem you hear a lot, but to say nothing is to much trouble is a understatement.
After deliberation and a few visits I decided to bite the bullet and get the Griff restored with
new carpets and leather. A winter project was agreed and the result was stunning.
Can't thank the guys enough and patience is a virtue, the car looks great and I would thoroughly recommend the guys on all TVR and sports car restoration and upkeep. Real Black Country welcome and folk who make you welcome.
No worries and No problem.
Keep it up guys and see you soon for the check up.
