Sometimes it can be simple things that make your driving experience less enjoyable.
Struggling with the handbrake, indicators, steering or ignition can be resolved with button depressants, indicator extensions & steering knobs. We design and install these simple adaptations here.
Sometimes more extensive work is required, and lightening the power steering, boosting the brakes and fitting electric handbrakes can be undertaken also.
Some adaptations are able to be supplied directly to our customers or to one of our many fitters throughout the UK. We manufacture a wide selection of steering knobs, spokes, quads and other aids to suit the individual.
