CASE STUDIES

Here are some examples of complete rebuilds and refinishes.  Refinishing is the main business we specialise in.

Ford GT40

My customer Shane wanted to change the colour from the original Holder yellow to white with blue stripes.

The stripes alone took seven hours to mask and paint. I chose a very nice blue pearl for them to really "pop" in the sunlight.

Ford Mustang

My customer Jeff had an idea for his Mustang.  He wanted a race car look from days gone by.  Matt black racing stripes and bonnet were just the ticket.  This car looks great.

Porsche 911 sc

This classic car had a really tired looking body.  I set to and stripped it back, then primed and painted it from scratch.

It is now has that fine classic look and I love the blue.

Morris Van

Owned by Puhoi Valley Cheese, they had a vision for a promotional vehicle.  I took their old burgundy van and repainted it cream.

It ended up with a motor transplant to a Datsun 1,200.  Additionally, it had a disc brake conversion, custom built exhaust and full interior make over.

Hand painted signage finished it off.

Chevrolet Belair

My customer, Laurie owned this Chevy and wasn't happy with the green.

He wanted the same colour as his Ford Coupe.  

So I set about changing the green to red.

The end result looked awsome.

Holden EH

I was contacted by a local restoration company to come on board with this nut and bolt rebuild.  After twelve months in the panel shop having all rust and dents removed, it arrived at my workshop.  The attention to detail on this Holden has to be seen to be appreciated.  I have painted everything that could be painted.  Total time was 3 years and she now looks better than new. 

This was how she looked on arrival at my workshop.

Citroens - favourite marque for our restorations

Following are examples of various Citroens which we love working on, some as they were when brought into our workshop and others in all their refinished glory.

Every one was refinished to the same standard as the various vehicles shown above.
