SLSHOPS: Complete Structural Check

Our Complete Structural Check combines the Bulkhead Check with the Underbody Check, giving a comprehensive picture of the condition of all metalwork beneath and inside your SL.


Why do I need it?

The structural underpinnings of your car and the condition thereof are imperative to the safety of your SL, as well as the value. Understanding the condition of your car underneath is vital, whether your car is to be shown, used or sold.

What does it do for the car?

Our Complete Structural Health Check is designed to give a full report on the integrity of a car, covering the all-important metalwork and mounting points from front to back. The bulkhead is arguably the one area on your car that has the potential to produce the largest bills. Establishing the health of this area or going on to resolve the problem completely creates a good foundation for the future of your car to be built on. A car that presents beautifully can hide a gigantic internal rot problem, and on more than one occasion we have found evidence of poor repair work or blatant attempts to hide an issue. 

What does it do for me?

The structure and bulkhead can quickly become vastly expensive areas to rectify – understanding the extent of the problem before embarking on restoration work is vital when allocating time, resources and finance.
