Bodyshop at Proctor Cars

Prestige Cars, Sports Cars & 4x4s in Derbyshire

From touching in a small stone chip to three stage machine polishing through to a full nuts & bolts restoration project we consistently deliver on time within budget and with a quality finish.

We consistently reinvest into our paint centre with the continual training of panel & paint specialists, high tech spray booths and our state of the art paint code database, where we have access to every colour by every manufacturer from Alfa Romeo through to Volvo and we endeavour to only use the most environmentally friendly products.

Our bodyshop has been born out of a commitment to quality and to satisfy the requirements of our valued customers, a level of quality we couldn’t previously achieve by using external sources.

Please feel free to make an appointment to discuss your requirements and allow us to show you our facility and workmanship. Call 08450 230 100 and ask for Steve.

Gen-3 Glasscoat ©

Protect your investment by one of the the world’s greatest vehicle protection and paint coating products.

Approved by 12 major motor manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe and endorsements by Lotus F1, Boeing (makers of Space Shuttle) and the world’s leading hyper-car manufacturer, Koenigsegg, guarantees that you are looking in the right place if you wish your vehicle to be treated with the world’s greatest paint coating product.

We are proud to be one of a handful of approved suppliers and installers of the Gen 3 Glasscoat system, GEN-3GLASSCOAT is a NEW complex formula, ceramic hardened glass finish which bonds to your car’s paint surface.

GEN-3GLASSCOAT is one of many innovative and technically superior products supplied under license by Paintseal Europe Limited. GEN-3GLASSCOAT’S advanced technology formulation ensures that dirt and grime are easily removed from painted surfaces. The hydrophobic action demonstrated by the product repels liquids and is extremely resilient to all kinds of damage.*

*Damage normally associated with acid rain, solvents and road salt should not create any issues. GEN-3GLASSCOAT has exceptional capability to resist the effects of car washes, solvents and animal matter.

GEN-3 GLASSCOAT exhibits superior cohesion and superior adhesion over waxes and polymer sealants currently on the market. The significant performance advantages over the other products are twofold:

Cohesion: The polysilazane chemistry of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT reacts out to 6-9H pencil hardness, whereas waxes, reactive silicones and acrylic polymers achieve the hardness of rubber cement. Reactive polymer chains exhibit low crosslink density- they do not readily bond to the paint surface, and this is one of the reasons that polymer based products sacrificial coatings require such intensive maintenance programmes and conservers, whereas GEN-3 GLASSCOAT does not. The molecules of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT are shorter than typical polymer chains, and each possesses multiple reactive sites. When fully reacted, GEN-3 GLASSCOAT contains hundreds to thousands of times more neighbour-to-neighbour chemical bonding than you see with polymer-to-polymer bonding. While the individual polymer strands don’t break, the low crosslink density means that they’ll separate, which causes polymer type coatings to lose their structural integrity. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s high crosslink density ensures excellent integrity to the paint coating, protecting against wear and degradation from the elements.

Adhesion: Like reactive polymer sealants, GEN-3 GLASSCOAT chemically reacts with hydroxyl (oxygen-hydrogen) groups. Such groups are present on other GEN-3 GLASSCOAT molecules (giving cohesion), but are also abundant on the surface of the paint/clearcoat system. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s high crosslink density enables it to “find” more hydroxyl groups to anchor to than is possible for a low crosslink density system, such as waxes and reactive polymers. Water vapor contributes hydroxyl groups, which makes them ubiquitous on all surfaces exposed to humidity. Proof of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s superior Cohesion and Adhesion: Organic solvent strips waxes and polymer paint sealants from any surface in a single swipe. Solvent molecules separate and undercut the polymers. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT, by contrast, is impervious to such solvents as mineral spirits, xylene, benzene, toluene, VM&P Naphtha, and acetone. Such resistance strikingly demonstrates the cohesive and adhesive nature of the GEN-3 GLASSCOAT coating, and helps to explain the product’s superior durability and solvent resistance performance in independent laboratory controlled testing.

Valet & Detailing

We have developed and refined our eye for detail over three decades

Our valet and detailing centre is located next to our showroom and delivers an exacting service to both in-house and external bookings. Our team have graduated from main prestige dealers and receive regular training in applying the latest technologies, not only in the professional application of specialist cleansing and enhancement materials but the extremely skilled application of the award winning Gen 3 Ceramic© paint coating protection system.

The Gen 3 product can only be installed by the approved dealer network and we are proud to one of a handful in the UK, this paint protection system has not only been tested and confirmed by NASA but is an official licensed product of the Lotus F1 team.
