About Us

The Lab is a light engineering & automotive/repair fabrication company specializing in Nissan modifications, Nissan Navara V8 conversions & carrying out mild to wild modifications on almost anything owned by someone wanting special attention to detail & high quality workmanship.

Owned & operated by Glenn & Christine Hodges, Glenn has over 12yrs experience in the aircraft servicing & repair industry & has been working on cars & selling car parts professionally for over 30 years.
The Lab was founded in 2010 & we operated from a modest unit in Tawn place in Hamilton, we have since relocated for the short term while we try to enjoy the early years with our little girl.

One of the best things we offer is on the spot quick thinking & solutions to problems other places may struggle or not even be able to solve, This ability is demonstrated fairly well with our little Nissan march racecar that now holds ~650hp & AWD, a fairly serious upgrade from the factory layout!

TIG, MIG, arc & gas welding, lathe work (up to 320mm diameter max) & general fabrication done on site with access to virtually unlimited machinery via sub contracting.

From basic maintenance to complete engine rebuilds, making a letter box through to a full automotive restoration/rebuild, The Lab can help you.

Please feel free to check out our extensive albums on out Facebook page or view our brief descriptions of notable projects listed here (we will be adding more very soon!)

Contact Glenn directly on 027 2789691 :)

I was running a little late yesterday so this popped up much later than usual.
If you didn't see it pop up in your notifications on YT then you need to hit the notification bell :)

Thanks again for the ongoing support from our good mates over at Link ECU!!

We will get a detailed video of all the benefits of the newer G4X over the G4+ when I've finished with the physical installation and we can get her tuned! :D
