Motorcycle Repairs

Motorcycle plastic welding has become more difficult as the manufacturers have started using alloys instead of just A.B.S. as they used to. Now we are finding alloys of A.B.S. plus P.A. or P.E.  or they are made totally of P.A. (nylon) with glass filling to give the part more strength and heat resistance.  We specialise in these new and more difficult plastics.  We also repair tanks, side covers, mudguards and an alloy welding service. We also re-cover damaged mufflers. We offer a total motorcycle repair service.

Motorcycle plastic repairs can make your girl look brand new for a fraction of the cost of new.

Automotive repairs

We repair all automotive plastics and truck parts. An example of this is a Willys Jeep steering wheel that was over 50 years old and was made of Bakelite and was missing a 2 inch section of the wheel. This was repaired and painted in two pack (Spiers Hecker) and has been in use on the vehicle for over 5 years now. The repairs are not detectable and robust.

We contracted to the RACV for 4 years and wrote the approval for automotive plastics repair which is the industry standard. We can repair and modify all car parts especially difficult to repair plastics including polyurethane (P.U.R.) and polyamide (P.A.).

Also difficult parts such as:

  • Door handles
  • Radiators
  • Body kits
  • Fan shrouds
  • Exterior body panels
  • Inner guards
  • Overflow / washer bottles
  • Trims
  • Rocker covers
  • Radiators
  • Headlights
  • Dash panels
  • Side skirts
  • Grilles
  • Truck parts

Bumper Bar Repairs

We have up to date tools and procedures to complete any bumper bar repair. Our advanced plastic welding system can repair it for the fraction of replacement cost.

Experience gained over many years in the industry

Our Manager David Bebarfald worked at the RACV Accident Repair Centre for four years doing automotive plastic repairs. This repair centre is the biggest panel shop in the world and is state of the art. He perfected the art of automotive plastic repairs and developed a new system that was based on new technology and skills that were learned doing several courses at Dandenong TAFE, including: plastics identification, plastic welding, polymer processing, thermoforming and chemical bonding.

He also worked with another plastic welder who had been doing bumper bar repairs for over 15 years. He wrote the approval for plastic welding for the RACV and specialises in repairing difficult plastics such as polyurethane, T.P.O, and E.P.D.M.

We also do repairs to all other automotive parts including: Headlights (missing tags/lugs can be fabricated) Grilles, Old bakelite steering wheels, Plastic guards and Shrouds.

All other plastic automotive parts

*NB. We don’t do vinyl repairs as the repair system for vinyl is substandard. We recommend re-covering the dashboard at a motor trimmer. In short we are the best option for bumper bar repairs in Melbourne.

We also do baked 2-pac paint work with spies hecker paint. A case in point was front and rear Holden Statesman bars repaired recently, not only are these bumper bars no longer available the last known list price for the two bars was $1,200.00. They were both repaired for $300.00. This included heating and re-shaping and over 2 meters of welding. They are now on the vehicle and the repairs are not detectable. Some areas were also strengthened to prevent any future knocks causing more damage in stressed areas.

Plastic Restorations

We have done many restorations including old and not available plastic parts. Including a 1956 Willys Jeep steering wheel and a Pontiac grille that was badly damaged in an accident. Probably the best example of what we can do is when a customer asked us to build an entire end and surround for a Audi Quattro five cylinder turbo. The entire end or one third of the bar and spoiler was missing and had to be fabricated and painted and then fitted to the vehicle.
