Welcome, I’m Nicholas Dunnage, founder and creator of Smart Restoration. A quality driven company dedicated in bringing enjoyment and satisfaction to classic car ownership.


Having been in the industry for over 27 years I have gained an intimate knowledge of restoration and it’s complexities right down to its finest details.


My hands on approach to managing restorations of both Jaguar and Aston Martin has culminated in a multitude of concour outright winners. While these British marques are my background and expertise I have a passion for all quality makes.


The directive of Smart Restoration is to bring you, the classic car enthusiast the most efficient and enjoyable restoration process you’ve experienced. Be you a first time buyer or a well seasoned veteran, my business is to save you money and deliver on quality.


Be your needs full comprehensive restoration, sympathetic or partial restoration, modifications, upgrades, purchase advice and valuations or even rescuing that project that may have spiralled out of control.

I am a fellow enthusiast with years of experience, offering you a wealth of knowledge and expertise. 

Be it British or any other, It’s all about getting a result.

All while making the process enjoyable, as ownership of any classic should be.
