Having enjoyed working for other companies within the motor trade for 10 years, Patrick Lockton decided to pursue his passion by setting up his own business.
Patrick grew up in Wellington and achieved his apprenticeship with a local Rover/Seat main dealer, gaining his NVQ qualifications in paint spraying, panel beating and welding. Since then he has worked in both small and large bodyshops, as well as carrying out custom and specialist work in his spare time.
Patrick is a car and motorbike enthusiast, his experience working on kit cars, race bikes, road bikes, exotic and super cars, rally cars, modified and prestige cars is second to none.
All this means that Patrick has a very keen eye for detail and is committed to perfection and precision!
Patrick treats all vehicles he works on as if they were his own, so rest assured that your vehicle is in the very best hands possible.
Patrick’s passion for building and refurbishing performance cars started when he was only 17. Here are some of his earliest projects. View the galleries by clicking on the images below.
We have had our cars featured in Compete Kit Car Magazine and our work made front page! Article reads:
"During last months feature on Factory Five we came across Taunton based Precision Paint, the firm that had made a stunning job of painting the two factory demo cars. Patrick Lockton set up the company nine months ago.
Having served his apprenticeship at a Rover and Seat main dealer, which also built rally cars and painted modified cars, he moved on to two other local body shops. Simultaneously, he was doing private work and when he became busy with his own business, it made sense to set up his own company.
Since then, Precision Paint has seen some incredible cars come through the doors - a Ferrari Dino, Porsche 911 GT3 and numerous Cobra replicas have all been given the treatment. the company is currently re-shelling a Mini, while an AK 427 has just been painted there too. From what we've seen of the Factory Five demonstrators, we'd rate Precision Paint's work very highly."
