After humble beginnings running a car body repair business out of his parent’s double garage in Hertfordshire, Peter is now director of Hilton Coachworks, the largest Mercedes Benz approved body repair facility in the UK. Away from the day to day running of the modern car repair business Peter enjoys an enthusiasm for classic British sports cars, this passion combined with an existing sports car dealership within his Hilton Group makes for the foundation of this new business venture and a natural progression to take the Hilton Group to a new level.
Tom has recently joined the business to look after the social media, marketing and PR. Having had a keen interest in cars from a young age, he finally decided the time was right to work with his passion. When he’s not at work, he’s another one spending his spare time doing something not dissimilar to his role day to day – participating in track days on his Suzuki GSX-R 1000 motorbike, or taking to the snow on a snowboard.

During his childhood years, Lewis spent his time in and around the family business, which was a garage carrying out general maintenance and restoration work on a variety of vehicles. Having been immersed in the automotive world from a young age, it was clear that this was the path he’d choose for his future career, gaining an extensive mechanical competency by only his teenage years. He quickly became keen on the restoration side of things in particular and soon progressed onto an apprenticeship with Hoyle-Fox Classics for five years, where he specialised in Ferraris and Lamborghinis. To broaden his experience and skills, upon leaving Hoyle-Fox, he worked for a main dealer for 3 years, but quickly found himself yearning to return to the classic car world and back to the restoration work he so loves. These attributes are reflected in the quality and precision of his work here at Hilton & Moss. Outside of business hours, Lewis is found working on his own cars, or racing his Mk1 Escort. Lewis is now an important part of our service and restoration team.

Over the years Elliot’s technique and skill has developed to a great extent and he is now an important part of Hilton and Moss. Having spent 3 years studying mechanics, Elliot gained a level 3 diploma, providing a solid base of knowledge on which to build. Then following this to complete an apprenticeship in house. His enthusiasm and communication skills have meant he has been able to progress enormously since joining us. Elliot’s passion for cars also extends beyond the workplace, he often enjoys working on his own projects including a MK1 Fiesta which he is currently restoring. Elliot’s pride and joy is his Toyota Supra which he is slowly returning to concours condition. He also owns 2 Saabs, and an R129 SL 500. Over the years Elliot has proven that the standards he works to are fastidious and he spends as much time outside work making improvements to his own vehicles as he does during his time here. He strives for perfection with every job he completes, from a localised repair on a wheel arch to a full bare metal restoration.
