An introduction…

David & Debbie Nightingale

Nightingale Coachtrimming was established in 1983, and for the last 30 years had been based in Wiltshire.

Over this time we have gained considerable experience in all types of vehicle.  We can undertake a very broad scope of work: simple repairs, sympathetic renovation, full or partial re-trims and bespoke re-designs.  The focus of work is now mainly on older vehicles with an emphasis on using techniques and materials appropriate to the era.

We invite you to explore this website, and contact us if there is any project you would like our help with.

More about us

When I took it to the 50th anniversary… your interior was the talk of the car park!



The car is shortly to emerge from its winter hibernation & I’m looking forward to some open motoring – it is much admired.



Debbie, please tell David I am well pleased with the trimming of the Ghost…



Once again many thanks for agreeing to do the upholstery at such short notice and for producing such a fine result earlier than originally anticipated. Without your input the deadline would not have been met.



You have done a wonderful job for me!



We would like to congratulate you on the steering wheel - it looks absolutely amazing and from the photo it is difficult to tell the difference from the original - it is almost as if the same hand has done both steering wheels- a fantastic success!



We really couldn't be more pleased with David's achievements.



I think that you have done a superb job on the Austin 7.You have completed it exactly as I wanted, very many thanks for your superb work!
