A little history lesson….
Reflex Auto Design is the sister company to Ideal Motors Coachworks.
Ideal Motors Coachworks was established in 1948 and is one of the longest running bodyshops in Northamptonshire –with good reason! Originally coachbuilders, Ideal Motors hand made bodies and panels for car and commercial vehicles alike –even using those skills to fabricate panels for Spitfire planes.
As a family-owned and run business, those rare bodybuilding and panel beating skills have been passed on through generations to the young, energetic technicians working on our shop floor today.
Moving from our town centre location in 1975, we relocated to the attractive village of Brixworth. Recently, we have now moved to a new state of the art workshop in the thriving town of Daventry where we installed a brand new top of the range spraybooth, paint mixing room and smart booth. Our smart booth means customers can benifit from cheaper repairs if the damaged area is small enough to fit in the smart booth rather than the full size booth ruling out the need to use kerbside “smart” repairers.
Northamptonshire is synonymous with the motorsport & cutting edge engineering industries. Located in the Heart of the Midlands, the region has been described as Motorsport Valley.™
The County boasts two international race circuits – Silverstone, to the south of the County and Rockingham Park to the north. Neighbours to the East, include Santa Pod (the home of Drag Racing) and Bedford Autodrome (Jonathan Palmer’s racing circuit),whilst to the west, the famous Donington Park race circuit.
We ourselves have even worked for Ilmor Engineering and more recently Mercedes Benz AMG High Performance Drivetrains.
