About Me

Urchfab started as a side business taking on small welding and fabrication jobs.

It’s since become a dedicated custom fabrication shop offering services including:

Roll cage fabrication
Tube frame chassis work
Chassis modifications
Custom suspension installations
Engine swaps
Steering modifications (drift)
Sheet metal work
Complete custom builds and much more.

I have worked on all types of vehicles including race cars, track cars, drift cars, hot rods, custom bikes and all sorts of classic vehicles.

I started tinkering with bikes at a young age and owned my first car at 13, an Austin Mini.

My introduction into motorsport started with racing motocross which I did for many years but after a serious leg injury I had to look out for a safer alternative. I got involved in drifting in 2012 and after seeing the large variety of different builds (especially retro cars) and the quality and effort that goes into them.

I take part in drifting demos and events at various tracks around the UK and have just built one of the most unique and probably oldest drift cars out there: a 1953 Ford Anglia.

I am especially interested in building one of a kind vehicles so if you’re interested in having something built then get in touch either by email – matt.urch @ hotmail.co.uk or by using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Cheers Matt

Hello Matt, just saying how much I have enjoyed watching you work, as a fabricator myself with 30 years self employed running my own fab shop doing all sorts of stuff but mainly industrial/commercial work (it pays the bills) its always nice to see innovative people such as yourself, good luck for the future, Maurice Leach.

Hi Matt, love the YouTube channel. Learning loads.
I’m building a Haynes Roadster (lotus7) with mx5 donor.
I think the mongrel build is looking great, keep up the good work

Hey Matt, Darrell here. I’m from the Dallas, Ft.Worth area of Texas. I’m following closely on the Mongrel build closely as I have always wanted to build an Anglia road car. I had a 100E Prefect and wanted to build Anglia into a roadster track car. Here in the states I’m more into drag racing as the road courses are far and few between. I am an old geezer but am building in my mind along with you. Keep up the good work. I’m learning quite a bit watching your progress and enjoy everything you’ve done so far.

Hi Darrell, I would like to do some drag racing at some point, maybe a build for the future. Cheers Matt.
