Trusted Panel Beater for Insurance Claims

As a small team of experienced panel beaters, Mickey’s Kustom Panel Beating shop is a trusted panel beater for insurance claims. Based in North Brisbane, we have a reputation for providing affordable, high quality autobody paint and panel repair services. We have a keen eye for detail and we leave no stone unturned in returning your vehicle back to showroom condition. Please give us a call for a quote on expert collision repair and insurance repair enquiries.

Whether it’s been a parking lot prang or a head-on collision, we have extensive experience in the flawless and seamless repair of our customer’s vehicles, including panel-beating, part replacement, painting and chassis repair. We have an expert team of panel beaters and painters well-equipped to bring your car back to showroom condition, and our robotic chassis alignment machine will make sure that your vehicle handles correctly, drives straight and is safe for you and your family.

Which Insurers Do You Work With?

We deal with all insurers without hassle and if your car is driveable, we’ll work with you to find the best time that suits you and our workshop schedule. Usually, if your vehicle has been written off, your insurer will arrange for your vehicle to be towed to our repair shop. In such cases, most insurers provide you with a courtesy car.

We realise that dealing with a crash, no matter how serious it is, can be traumatic for most people, and we strive to eliminate as much of the stress from your end as possible.

Seamless Repairs:

While crashes do inevitably reduce the value of vehicles, we use high quality materials and repair processes to ensure the effect on your car’s value is minimal, and that your repair is seamless.

That includes:

  • Using OEM-specification paints
  • Using OEM-specification parts and panels
  • Highly accurate chassis adjustment

Your vehicle frame, if damaged or warped, will be adjusted by our robotic chassis adjustment machine, ensuring your car drives straight. Parts are sourced from reputable suppliers, ensuring they are the OEM replacement designed to fit your vehicle specifically. We use high quality paint mixes, made to OEM specifications to ensure your vehicle looks just as good as it did before the accident.

Custom Paintjobs

Custom Vehicle Paint Work and Airbrushing

Mickey’s Kustom Panel Beating are North Brisbane’s go-to expert for vehicle restorations and custom paint work. We sit down with our customers and carefully evaluate their vision and transform their vehicles into reflections of their personality, turning heads wherever they go. Be it an entire respray, a touch-up, or colouring your new spoiler, we’ll provide a professional solution. Please give us a call to organise a quote.

Closed-door vs Entire Respray: What’s right for me?

When getting a quote for a respray, many of our customers ask about whether an open-door or closed-door respray is right for them. First of all, let’s cover the difference. A closed-door respray is your basic exterior respray; the entire exterior of the vehicle is painted, but the undersides of panels (e.g. under a bonnet, engine bay etc.) are left untouched. An open-door respray, on the other hand, is where we spray both sides of your panels, so if you open your bonnet, the underside of it and the engine bay will be the same colour and tone of the exterior colour.

Closed-door resprays are favoured because they’re typically cheaper, as entire resprays obviously require more paint, and also require more labour as most of the interior of your vehicle will need to be stripped. Entire resprays are favoured on more high-end vehicles, as well as restorations, because of their attention to detail.

For customers selecting an entirely different colour, sometimes an entire respray may seem more attractive as it will look original. If a customer wants the same colour resprayed, it’s often not worthwhile painting the undersides of the panels, as they’re the same colour and typically in better condition, as they haven’t been exposed to sunlight, and as such, a closed-door respray would better suit their needs and budget.

Fibreglass Colouring:

Got some cosmetic modifications that you want to make pop? We’ve performed professional colour matches and contrasts to all different kinds of aftermarket vehicle parts including:

  • Wheel arch and quarter panel extensions
  • Spoilers
  • Hood scoops and replacement bonnets
  • Motorbike Fuel Tanks

Furthermore, we can do the panel beating and attachment of accessories in-house; check out our panel beating services. We also offer painting of 4×4 accessories, including canopies and bulbars.

Airbrushing and Sticker Transfer Decals:

For those that just want a little bit more personalisation added to their car to showcase their passion, we can contract out a local airbrush artist who has done some fabulous designs for us in the past, including on race cars and business vehicles.

We also offer sticker transfer decal designs, which are great for those that want a bit of personalisation added, but want the ability to easily remove it should their tastes change, or when they want to sell the car.

Restoration

Vehicle Auto-body Restoration and Resto-Modding

Mickey’s Kustom Panel Beating have extensive experience in restoring old husks of vehicles into beautiful, historically accurate cars, ready for new life to be breathed in to them. From restorations to resto-mods, we’ll transform your vehicle into showroom condition, ready for mechanical work to be done. Our small team includes specialists in automotive panel beating, some with close to 20 years’ experience in painting, repair and restoration.

As fellow automotive enthusiasts, we are just as dedicated to your vision as you are and we sit down with you to discuss in detail the kind of car you see yourself driving in the future. Give us a call to discuss our vehicle restoration services further –  0416 209 048.

Complete Auto-body Restoration:

Ultimately, the timespan and extent of the restoration process depends on a number of factors, such as how complete the existing vehicle is and of course, their condition. Our complete auto-body restoration process is extensive and includes everything necessary to bring it to the next step of mechanical restoration and engineer approval.

Common restoration procedures we perform include:

  • Rust Removal
  • Chassis Alignment and Repair
  • Part Sourcing and Installation
  • Panel beating
  • OEM-spec and Custom-Blend Paintjobs

Is your auto-restoration starting from the ground-up? If you don’t have the time yourself, we can source parts from donor vehicles, as well as OEM and reproduction parts for your pride and joy to keep it as original as possible whilse eliminating hassle at your end.

Rust Removal Process:

Beyond the looks, removing rust is important to ensure that your car will be safe to use on the roads, and it’s something that is important to take care of before you start working on the mechanical part of your restoration; the mechanic and the engineer signing off on it will thank you for it later. We use a high-tech rust removal process to keep your car sturdy and looking great, as well as ensuring that it’ll pass engineer certification.

Painting:

Paints on older cars were a lot different to how they are today, and it’s quite often difficult to source an OEM-spec paint that is true to the original. We mix paint to the original OEM paint source, ensuring maximum accuracy.

Alternatively, if you’d like to ‘resto-mod’ your pride and joy, we’ve got a range of custom paint options available to you, and one of our like-minded painters can talk to you about what we can do, and discuss how we can reach your vision.

Chassis Alignment and Repair:

If you’ve got a car that has been in a crash or has a chassis that’s warped, it’ll need to be straightened if you want your car to go straight down the road. We use a state-of-the-art robotic chassis alignment technology to straighten it back to original condition, making it fit for road use.

4×4 Accessories

4×4 Bulbar, Canopy and Siderail Painting

Just bought a new canopy or bulbar? Have North Brisbane’s panel-beating and painting experts personalise your new accessory to match or contrast your car. Our small team of experienced auto painters will realise your vision and customise your accessory professionally, making your 4×4 stand out from the pack. Give us a call for a quote for our custom paintjob services – call 0416 209 048.

What 4×4 Accessories Do You Work On?

Our extensive experience in painting metal and fibreglass vehicles and accessories gives us the ability to paint pretty much any accessory you’d like, including but not limited to:

  • Fibreglass canopies
  • TSA Canopies
  • Side steps
  • Side rails
  • Bullbars

Our work is highly regarded in the local North Brisbane area and many 4×4 accessory shops, such as TJM, recommend us to their clients for painted work. We’re happy to work with any brand, and can work on brand new or existing accessories you have installed. While it is easier to work on equipment that hasn’t yet been installed, we’re still happy for you to come in with your car if it’s already installed and we’ll have you out the door with a high-quality paintjob in next to no time.

Paintwork:

There’s no doubt that 3rd party accessory manufacturers often put out better equipment than their OEM counter-parts, but the problem is that they can look out of place on your vehicle if they aren’t painted to the same colour. We can work with any metal or fibreglass 4×4 accessories you have, matching your existing OEM paint, or contrasting it with black or another colour to give it a more personalised appearance.

Commitment to Quality:

We realise that 4×4 equipment cops more rough usage than any other vehicle equipment out there, and we paint your equipment with high quality paints and clear coats, allowing for them to wear the brunt of their intended usage for longer without cosmetic faults appearing easily.

Chassis Alignment and Repair:

If your car needs a chassis alignment performed, our in-house robotic chassis correction machine will ensure your car is structurally sound and fit for everyday road use.

Industrial

Industrial Equipment Paintwork and Maintenance

Mickey’s Kustom Panel Beating and Paint Shop provide high quality industrial liveries, paint maintenance and panel repairs to local industrial and construction companies. We’re a small team of painting and panel repair experts, with experience working on vehicles all across Australia. After setting up shop in 2014, we’ve established a loyal customer base of business clients looking for professional paintwork done in a timely manner. Please give us a call to discuss how we can help improve the image you present to your clients with high quality liveries on your industrial equipment.

Having custom liveries deployed across your various industrial and construction equipment is beneficial to your business, especially if you’re trying to grow and attract more customers. You’re effectively paying for a moving billboard without the ongoing fees of one. We can work within branding constraints, as well as designing from-scratch air-brush or transfer decals for your industrial equipment. We realise that you might have a diverse range of different models in your fleet, and we can adapt our designs to look seamless and bespoke for each individual model in your industrial fleet.

Our portfolio of industrial work includes doing complete re-sprays and business liveries for construction equipment, vehicles, and even miscellaneous metal products, such as beams. Some of the common industrial equipment we do work on includes:

  • Bobcats
  • Cranes
  • Trucks
  • Excavators

Industrial Fleet Maintenance:

We realise that getting your industrial and construction equipment dirty and scratched up is to be expected, and for some business owners and builders, it is worn with pride. It is, however, important to have it regularly maintained to ensure the branding you have on it is still visible and attractive to customers. Maintenance also helps extend the life of your machinery’s paintwork. We can organise scheduled cut and polishes of your equipment individually, and we also work hard to get them back and ready for action as soon as possible, minimising the time it spends off the job site.

High Quality Paint:

Part of owning industrial equipment is knowing that it’ll get scratched and dirty; that’s just part of life. We do, however, think that using high quality paints with quality clear coating solutions is necessary to extend the life of the paint job in harsh environments and prevent premature wear and tear, and we only use high quality paints on all the vehicles we paint.
