Michael started in the automotive industry in 1973 as a panel beater and spray painter working for Alfa Romeo. In his early years he was involved in building boats, honing his skills in fibreglass and aluminium fabrication, which was to be of great assistance in the future repairing and restoring classic vehicles. Michael is committed to his trade, business and customers and he and his son Joseph have assembeled a team of tradesmen who are also deeply commited to thier craft.

Collectively there is over seventy years of experience and knowledge between the team and they all share similar levels of professionalism and enthusiasm for what they do, how they communicate and the classic cars they deliver back to customers.
Still-One Automotive Restoration oversees every aspect of your restoration and will project manage some elements with reliable companies they have worked with for many years. In house they provide full restoration capabilities including paint, panel, rust repairs, chassis and body alignment along with fabrication in metal, fibreglass or aluminium. The workshop is large, bright and airy and can comfortably hold up to twelve cars although most of the time they choose to work on four to six projects at one time allowing easy access and the necessary space to get in and get the job done. There are various hoists, a paint shop and individual work areas that provide plenty of space for a full body off restoration.
The knowledge gained from understanding classic car owners expectations of a restoration company has led to the delivery of a range of services for current and future clients. Still-One Automotive Restoration provides a full service and will take care and responsibility for every aspect of the project. The team is also very focussed on the final result and turnover more restored cars by being organised, having the space in the workshop to perform all related tasks and utilise their combined knowledge and experience with their suppliers, partners and staff to get the car back to their owners on time.

Every aspect of the job including parts, labour and what was done in explicit detail is shown on the invoices. All the parts that have come off a customers car are kept until the customer views them and understands their part in the restoration process. Customers can then choose to have the parts thrown out or take them home.
