We have been making gaskets for over 50 years and have a skilled team that can manufacture vintage and classic car gaskets from templates, drawing or the physical components. Whether producing a one-off or a large batch, we apply the same meticulous approach, in many cases hand-finishing the components.
Typically fabricated from composite materials, more traditional metals such as copper or combinations of the two.
We manufacture a wide range of exhaust head gaskets, often in steel or copper to suit the components of the vintage vehicle.
manifold and non-asbestos or auto specific compound materials.
Sump gaskets are often manufactured from oils, fuel and alkali resistant composite materials such as nitrile bonded cork.
Over the years, we’ve worked with individuals and bulk customers, such as car clubs or vehicle component suppliers, to fabricate head, exhaust, sump and manifold gaskets for a multitude of classic cars including Bentley, Rolls Royce, Hillman and many others.
We combine modern manufacturing using CAD and CNC or die-cutting, along with traditional hand-finishing skills to ensure the finished quality of the gasket. Our process typically includes:
A wide variety of gasket materials are available to suit the vehicle, whether modern composite materials using graphite and rubber, or more traditional vehicle gasket materials such as cork and copper.
We hold a large stock of classic car gasket sheet materials and our experienced team will be happy to offer guidance in specifying the right material.

Our highly experienced technicians can advise you on the best sheet materials and manufacturing processes for a wide range of gasket applications.
We recently produced a short run of head gaskets for the Rolls Royce owners club, and regularly produce gaskets for all types of engines, exhaust systems and transmissions. Our clients have included automotive manufacturers, classic car clubs, vintage motorcycle clubs and vintage marine boat organisations. We’ve also fabricated engine and vehicle gaskets for the farming sector and where older engines are used in heavy industry.
