MEET THE TEAM

Under the watchful eye of Dec McKearney and Sam Martin, owners of Bodymaster Prestige Paint and Panel, Resto my Ride showcases a unique team of panel beaters, spray painters, mechanics and engine builders who share a passion to bring older rod, muscle, classic and custom rides back to their former glory.

Workshop drama, gas fuelled egos, the pressure mounts to get each restoration completed within 4 weeks.  With time not usually on their side and things not always going to plan, each Resto is tackled individually and to the highest standards.
