Unfortunately most spyder builders today have amazing skills in laying fibreglass, but when it comes to the honed skill of an English Wheel which takes hours just to curve a piece of aluminium into shape, you need a different breed. For those owners of original 550 spyders who reach a point where their pride and joy needs some cosmetic work done, you need to find a specialist. It is important to seek skilled artisans who are both sympathetic to the model and also have intricate knowledge of every nut and bolt that makes up this giant killer. From hand beaten panel repairs to complete bare body restorations, these are some of the qualified restoration workshops who have had extensive experience in working on original spyders and other classic cars.
