After having dealings with Andys Restorations over a 3 year period I must say the end result was stunning and would recommend them without hesitation. However make sure you are well cashed up before you go, their chargeout rate was $90 an hour or $3600 a week + materials.

I'd suggest going down and having a look at their work. I live in the next suburb (Miranda) so i'd be interested to know what they're like. It'd be nice to get my 7 done close to home so i could drop by and keep an eye on what they were doing!

What's their address?

hotrod owners tend to have way deeper pockets than the majority of four or rotary owners, not to mention a lot of them would be older and less likely to put up with or pay out for shoddy work - plus your have to ask yourself, how many hotrods have you seen with crap paint :?:

im just trying to avoid a fantastic looking car with doors that look like ski slopes side on (like all too many "show cars"), paint that starts to bubble out in places in a couple of years, painters that wont guarantee their work, and the current "in" place for getting a car done thats more focused on getting the numbers in and out of their shop.

Well thats just my thoughts anyhow - but a word from anyone whos had anything to do with them would be appreciated.

At the end of the day im not interested in having the fastest car, but I have all the new panels and the body shell to have one of the very best looking ones :wink:

Andy's work is GREAT, but dont expect much change from at least $10K. Last time I was there he was showing me a few rods in his shop, saying he's had jobs costing over $60K :shock:
But he's definately the guy to see for a top job. I believe he's done a few of the PPG display cars, and they wouldnt let just anyone paint for them, would they?

Go to a car show and look at some cars and find out who painted them.

By car show i don't mean autosalon either.

and yes, the 2 so called "GUN" places in Sydney for paint, have not impressed me one little bit.

Rob & Steve are perfectionists at their work.

Rob owns a gorgeous RX3 and prides on being a rotary owner as the rest of the boys are into other cars. They never stop giving him a hard time. ;)

Also a good laugh when you get to know them and worth visiting them to see their operation.

Yep, moved to Miranda in January. I drive a red S3 RX-7, but it hasn't seen the road around here yet. Tucked up in the garage atm. I've probably seen yours around! Seen a few 7's in the area. There's a nice white SP that gets around. He goes to Sylvania Fitness First. I drool everytime i see it :D

My mates dad works for Andys and this old bloke is top notch. Mates XY GT just came out of there, work is unbelieveable, attention to detail is perfect.

I highly recommend Andy’s if anyone is considering having their car restored or repaired. Andy is a likeable character with great communication skills and attention to detail.

Andy definitely puts customer satisfaction first and will go that extra yard to ensure work is well finished.

In addition, the company has in house fabrication skills to replace or repair damaged panels and chassis.
