RESTORATION

There are many areas of our business we pride ourselves in, and restoration of lamps to concours quality is certainly one of our biggest passions, but we have others too.​

The skillset developed over the years has allowed Genius of the Lamp to be able to repair and restore all brightwork of a veteran, vintage or classic cars. We are able to restore radiator shells, windscreens, door frames, bumpers and everything in between. 

No matter how badly corroded or damaged the item, Genius of the Lamp can restore it back to its former glory. This has been proven time and time again with many projects being fully restored to concours quality and heading to prestigious events across the globe, most notably, Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance (USA), Retromobile (France), Techno Classica Essen (Germany), Concours of Elegance (UK), Rolls Royce Annual Rally (UK), London to Brighton (UK).

The Restoration Process

The Genius of the Lamp approach to your lamp's restoration is based upon sound knowledge of its original construction.

 

Your headlamp is completely dismantled to reveal its constituent parts - from its external vehicle mounting stud, stone guard, outer rim, main body, lens, reflector, hinges, brackets (and even its manufacturer's badges) to the internal components that provide its fueling mechanism - whether electric, oil-based, or self-generated acetylene.

 

On completion of repair, components are inspected and made ready for electroplating in copper, nickel and chrome, if needed.

 

All restored components of the lamp are accurately re-positioned and carefully re-assembled.

Your completed lamp is highly polished and buffed to a pristine finish, ready for exhibition.
