R&K Garage donates Tesco vouchers to King Edward Primary School

December 10, 2020 in Charity

Here at R&K Garage we love to support our local community which is why we have donated Tesco gift vouchers to King Edward Primary School.

The school will use these vouchers to create seven hampers which will be prizes in their raffle.

The money raised from this will go into their school fund which helps out a range of things across the school which the budget does not cover, such as the separate Christmas parties that each class will have.

Head Boy Bailee and Head Girl Daisy kindly came down to R&K Garage, along with Mrs Mellors, to collect the vouchers.

We wish you the best of luck with your fundraising!

If you would like to get involved then raffle tickets are available to purchase from the school office.

Restoration of a Jeep CJ-7

November 24, 2020 in Body Shop

At R&K Garage we are home to one of the leading body shops in Mansfield with high quality, state of the art equipment!

We recently had the pleasure of assisting with the restoration of a Jeep CJ-7.

This model was introduced by Jeep in 1976 with around 379,299 being built during its 11 years of production.

R&K Garage couldn’t wait to get started on the project.

The old and rusted parts arrived to our body shop ready to be shot blast, prepped and re-sprayed.

The front grill was probably the item in the worst condition which needed more attention than anything else. The body tub was in near perfect condition, the rubberised underseal needed removing and a heavy duty coating on the underside.

Next we received the body which went straight into our body shop to be sprayed.
