Leyland DAF Horse Box repairs / respray from green to burgundy black.

25th February

Currently in for refinishing is a Leyland DAF Horsebox going from tired green to burgundy respray / black window surrounds. Extra care and attention has been paid to this vehicle in respect of its age and condition ensuring a first class paint respray (as is the case with all of our work).

The exterior body panels were worn / dented / damaged and needed significant surface repairs to allow a smooth finish. The original stripes had to be sanded away and primer / filler several times to remove the visible lines that the decals / stripes had left behind due to wear and tear and age of the vehicle.

Willenhall Libary get new window graphics / signage.

24th February

Coopers have supplied / installed a new window sign to the front of Willenhall Library Entrance. Although this was a relatively small project we took great pleasure in installing this signage. What truly amazed us (besides the quality of our work!) were the people from the local town who commented on working on the library , who were polite and courteous (as we were blocking the entrance in the rain) and the age range of the public who visited the library while we were there.

This little library is a hidden gem in the town of Willenhall and we were very proud to have helped raise its awareness, even if it was only a window sign seen from the roadside.

Willenhall finally get signage for the local library
