THE BEACHAM PROCESS
In the delivery of their famous BEACHAM Marques,
Beacham Jaguar have developed a worldwide reputation for
delivering an unparalleled level of service, quality and craftsmanship
in the meticulous attention to detail they pay to every step of the
BEACHAM modernisation or restoration process.
In the beginning, vehicles are selected based on the requirements of the client. We scout the country and the world for a body that can be used as the basis for the client's car. These classic marques can end up being hidden in all types of locations - in the backs of garages, locked in storage containers or underneath tarpaulines in farm back paddocks. These bodies are shipped to BEACHAM Jaguar where a rigorous evalution process takes place. Dr Beacham and his team carefully dismantle the vehicle to ascertain what major structural and rust removal work needs to take place. As you can imagine, for some vehicles, this work is often extensive.
Once the vehicle has arrived and been stripped down of all its elements
it is ready for our team of dedicated professionals to carefully manage
the process of massaging the body of the car back to its former glory.
This process can often take many months, as each section of the car is
worked over, ensuring all rust is removed and replaced with new metal
which is then handcrafted to ensure it matches exactly with the shape
and functionality of the original car.
BEACHAM Jaguar have, over the years, developed an enviable, often controversial reputation as the specialists in making classic marques live up to the standards of modern engineering - meaning these iconic vehicles can once again be used as everyday vehicles on modern roads.
Paint is one of those things that when you get it right, you get it very right.
And BEACHAM have a history of getting it very right, every time. Our paint shop uses discernment and craftsmanship to deliver absolute perfection in the covering of every panel of a BEACHAM marque with ten or more layers of the world's highest quality paint. Ensuring a finish and a look that is sure to dazzle aficionados across all areas of the vehicle restoration market.
Once the painting process has been completed, the newly painted body shell is then handed over to an assembly team, who set about installing trim, electrical, body and mechanical components. A worldwide search by BEACHAM Jaguar has identified the best component suppliers available. Their specialized technology along with BEACHAM engineering and flair has ensured exceptional quality is built into each car that leaves the assembly line.
BEACHAM use only materials of the highest quality for the fitout of their cars. This has been shown in countless examples where BEACHAM have hand-tailored every piece of a vehicle's interior to cater exactly to the client's taste - from subtle and alluring to dramatic and enviable. We are able to deliver to the client's specific requirements or offer possible colour schemes that we feel compliment perfectly the attitude and personality of the vehicle and client.
Our electricians are able to rewire the entire vehicle chassis ensuring every loom and fuse is correctly placed to fit within the sometimes extensively modified framework. Due to this origination position from which BEACHAM are able to plan wiring work, we are able to include the most modern and sophisticated instrumentations available on the market -from climate control and GPS to Bluetooth handsfree kits or in-car entertainment systems.
Before we ship the BEACHAM Marques we take care to ensure that every level of certification has been reached for the market in which we are to ship the car. This involves a rigorous process of road testing on local roads. Fortunately Hawkes Bay's local roads give us access to mutiple different types of driving conditions from difficult hill climbs to long wide open expanses to allow us to do this.
Delivery can be arranged via shipping container or air freight depending on the requirements of the customer. BEACHAM will work directly with the transport providers and the customer to ensure that your new BEACHAM Marque reaches you in pristine condition and in accordance with the transport timeline that best suits the client.
