Of particular interest to owners of pristine vehicles is the fleecy lined custom car covers which I tailor to your requirements and finish off with quality embroidery if required.

Although classic and sports cars of all makes find their way into my shed. Porsche’s in particular keep appearing on a regular basis to undergo upholstery and trimming services.

Prior to starting my Car Cover business in a small factory in 1989 at Bayswater Vic, I started working on 356 Porsche vehicles with Andrew Keiller (@ LMK917). Andrew has gone on to build the most beautiful Porsche 917’s you will find. I still do the custom Porsche trimming for Andrew and two of his son’s. The younger son Tim, now creates Porsche 906’s to perfection.

Soon after completing a number of 356’s we started upholstery trimming on Porsche 911’s and other Porsche models for people like John Gregory from Spyder Automobiles which is now run by Mike Jacobson with whom we still collaborate.

Today,  I still love the challenge of custom manufacture. Nothing like the satisfaction of seeing clients eyes gleam as they take possession of their treasured restored vehicle.
