Contract Type
We are a metalworking and fabrication outfit called 'Old Bones fabrications' based in north Hants just outside Andover. We specialise in metal work, fabrication and all types of welding but the majority of our business is in the classic car sector. We restore cars from the ground up, but we also customise and update projects as well as carrying out modern engine and drivetrain conversions.

We cater for all aspects of a complete build from the ground up. Mechanical and maintenance, wiring, panel work, chassis building, engine overhauling and paint.

We have expanded but due to the influx of work, we are after another skilled and reliable worker to join the team.

The position we are looking to fulfil would be more strictly panel work. This includes panel replacement and panel fabrication. Applicant must have good experience with ground up restorations and panel forming. We work on a lot of high end vehicles where we aim for a paint finish on some of the panel repairs so you must be extremely confident in your finishing skills. Mechanical and general car knowledge is essential also. Experience using specialist equipment like folders, bead rollers, slip rollers, English wheel etc would be required in this field of work.

We pride ourselves on finish and quality, so if you have made a sill repair panel with a chisel and a vice in your garage for your old mini before and think you would like to give this a go then you need not apply.

We are fully booked with work for a full year already, so the position is effective immediately.

The position is on a self employed basis, this means working hours are very flexible to suit your needs or around other employment.

Hourly rate is negotiable on skillset, but I take care of my lads so they look after the business with pride. I will pay you what you are worth to the company and with the added benefit of overtime rates.

We are a young and driven team so the applicant must work well as part of a small team, enthusiastic and willing to aim for perfection all the time. A sense of humour in this trade is a must as the work can be gruelling at times!
