Dec McKearney has a passion for restoring cars.

His passion started back in Ireland where he has fond memories of working on cars with his father when he was very young.  It was a natural progression to start restoring them.

Having completed his apprenticeship, he packed his bags and thought he’s try his luck in Australia and headed to Melbourne.

Dec worked for some of Melbourne’s most prestigious and well known panel shops specialising in the repair of high end European brands with the odd restoration and custom build throw in.

With years of experience in Prestige Care repair and restoration, Dec decided it was time to open his own workshop.

The team at Bodymaster Prestige Paint and Panel are experienced in all areas of repair and refinishing using the highest quality materials and equipment from leading brands including PPG paints, 3M and Wielander Schill.

At any stage in the workshop you can see Prestige vehicle repairs, Hot Rod, Muscle and Classic car restoration.

More recently the workshop has become the home of new Aussie TV series Resto my Ride.

Dec and the team at Bodymaster enjoy talking shop with everyone that comes into the workshop including respected collectors, restorers and car enthusiasts.
