A family business based in Barkston for 30 years has moved to Grantham.

Barkston Refinishing restores classic and vintage cars and carries out accident repairs along with a range of services.

The team consisting of David Sharman, his wife Rosemarie, son Paul and David’s brother Andy, are now operating from their new site at Sharman’s Yard in Turnpike Close.

They specialise in classic and vintage car restoration, and their expertise was proved when a 30s vintage Rolls Royce restored by them won the Rolls Royce Concours d’elegance last summer and car of the show at the International Classic Car Show at Birmingham’s NEC.

After decades in the trade, David, who is also part of the Grantham Classic Car Club, said: “I’ve been working for 43 years and I’m not ready to hang up my spray gun just yet.”

It is not just cars that benefit from Barkston’s professional paintwork though, as they also worked with Sleaford company Bridge Violins to create musical instruments for the backing bands of McFly and Gnarls Barkley on their world tours.

Paul said: “There is no job too big or too small, and we are not just about painting cars.”

Barkston Refinishing are open Monday to Friday 8am-5.30pm, and Saturday 8am-2pm, with more details at www.barkstonrefinishing.co.uk
