Car and boat restorations: 2023 Recap

Car and boat restorations 2023 Recap

A new year is here! With 2024 starting, it is time to reflect on the last year. Over the last 12 months, our team has completed an impressive amount of projects that have come through our doors.

From restorations to repairs, our automation and marine team have had the pleasure of working on various vehicles and marine vessels.

Join us on a trip down memory lane as we revisit some of our 2023 projects.

Smash repairs

Having to repair your car after an accident can already be inconvenient, but when it is a vintage model, it can be even more of a headache. Luckily for the owner of this Daimler

Smash repairs

Double Six Fi Sedan, they chose our team, one of the leaders for smash repairs in Castle Hill. Not only did we repair the damage to the front and back of this vehicle, but we also located new OEM parts required for the job.

With custom cars, you’ll need a smash repairer and a custom detailer to fix your car after an accident. That is what this Tesla Model Y required earlier in the year. Not only did we repair the panels of this car, but we also wrapped it in satin to blend with the rest of the car’s wrap.

After a front-end collision, this Audi SQ7 was sent to us for repairs. All organised through the customer’s insurance company, we maintained regular contact with the insurance, making it a fast and easy experience for the customer to get back on the road. In the end, we repaired the car to factory standards and sent them on their way as good as new with a box of chocolates!

Marine repairs

As the peak summer season ended, we saw multiple marine vessels enter our workshop for some repairs and basic services. Ensuring your marine vessel performs up to its capabilities is vital, meaning regular servicing and checks are essential. In February, this Seadoo came in for a safety check and a basic service.


Later in the month, a 2010 Seadoo GTX came in for a mechanical service and a safety check. This is a great way to maintain the quality of your jet ski but also keep its value.

Car restorations

As car enthusiasts, we love nothing more than restoring a car to its full glory. Therefore, when this Datsun 1200 Ute tray was to us, we were stoked to revive it. Fixing the tray, we delivered the owner a quality coated tray that has never looked better.

The owner of this Nissan Silvia S15 wanted his vehicle to look better than ever. Never disappointing, we paint stripped and repaired the full vehicle from the rust and poor previous repairs. We also fitted aftermarket front and rear bumper bars and side skirts, finishing with a closed-door respray.

Offering one of the best services for hydro dipping in Sydney, our team loves a good hydrographic, especially for restoration purposes. We restored this dashboard in April by giving it a classic brown wood grain hydrographic. Look at the fantastic, finished results!

Custom car detailing

There is nothing better than a customised vehicle. Owning a one-of-a-kind vehicle offers an indescribable level of pride. The Harley Davidson Custom owner wanted this feeling, using our custom coating services to respray his white pearl bike.

What about this 2022 Audi RS3? Our team hydro-dipped and fitted a Maxton Design Front Splitter V.1 Audi RS3 8Y. Finishing it from the front to end perfectly, the results speak for themselves.

Hydro graphics not only provide a quality finish but also allow owners to achieve a unique look for their vehicle. We gave parts of a Ford Mustang a makeover with these unique black and white graphics, bringing the engine bay to life.
