Vehicle Valet Service

We have recently employed a vehicle groomer to add to our repair service.
Dayne comes to us with more than 14 years in the Rental vehicle industry cleaning and grooming rental cars with Avis and Budget Rentals, so now when you have Brads repair your vehicle you get the benefit of a free professional groom on your car.
If you simply want to get your car cleaned and freshened up for the quickly approaching summer season, call us or drop in for a quote anytime.

Xmas/New Years

We have had a great year for 2009. Our staff have done a hell of a job this year so they are taking the Xmas/New Years Holiday season off to relax with their families etc from Dec 24th to Jan 5th. However we will still be open (other than the Statutory holidays) with a small crew including myself, to take care of your vehicle repair enquiry’s.
We will be able to keep your car going over the holiday season with temporary repairs and our courtesy cars are always available too of course (free of charge for insured customers) should you require.
Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
Best wishes from Brad Marney and staff.

VK Commodore SS Group C

Some long hours have gone in over the last month or so and the body is completely painted inside and out now.
The entire boot interior and rear 1/4 panels have been lined out with noise matt, as has the rear seat bulkhead and parcel shelf. This product is often overlooked in builds but offers a significant reduction in exhaust and road noise transfer, into the passenger area.
This week will see the bumpers, spoiler and arch flares rubbed and painted and the black applied to the door frames and around the tail lamps.
Assembly is well under way, with the old factory central locking system removed in readiness for new alarm and remote central locking system.
Windows will be sent for tinting this week and outer door handles will be sandblasted to ensure a good key before being painted.
The 5 speed gearbox will be installed onto the engine, brakes will be bled up and radiator checked and fitted.
I will start posting pictures regularly now as there is progress to see.

A few small parts (grille, bumpers and rear spoiler etc) still require painting however they will be completed as they are able to be fitted in around our daily work load. The car will mean time be delivered so the owner can refit the engine and interior etc while we are finishing the small parts.
