Rust surgery is common on older vehicles. Like us, blemishes start to appear but unlike aging we can put a stop to rust. Rust forms in many ways and can go undetected causing unseen major damage. Whether you have minor rust holes requiring a partial panel replacement or major rust requiring an entire floor or structural replacements, we can repair it. We first remove all rust from the vehicle then treat the panel before rewelding or patching where the rust has been removed. We then either use genuine repair patches or in some cases where they are unavailable we can make custom patches in house. Once the patches are welded in place we cover the area in epoxy.
Our team of highly skilled panel beaters have years of experience when it comes to smash repairs, even if your car looks like a banana, don’t stress we can fix it. All smashed vehicles are repaired using high quality parts and for those that are a bit too far out of shape we have a pulling rack installed in the workshop, so all vehicles with major damage can be measured and pulled back to their original design. If structural points of the car i.e. beaver panel or sills etc. have been damaged beyond repair we can also cut and reweld new sections into the vehicle.
Guard rolling applies to most makes and models of cars and generally is needed when you’re planning to lower your car or you’re going for that aggressive fitment. Rolling the guards/lip of the guard gives you extra clearance between the body and wheel or tyre to eliminate the scrubbing without having to worry about damaging paint work.
For the more extreme fitments guard pumping applies. Pumping the guards can involve heating and stretching the front/rear quarters of the car or cutting and rewelding them to give the car an overall wider look and also allows a considerable increase in clearance for those wider wheel fitments that need more than just guard rolling.
If you paint is starting to look a bit old and faded Low.Co offers a cut a polish service. The process works in 3 stages. First, each car is colour sanded by hand in the more damaged areas to remove superficial scratches that have not passed through the clear coat. This can also minimise paint oxidisation. Your car is then buffed using a fine grade cutting compound which will take away most of the scratches over the vehicle, minor paint fade etc. The last stage is a hand wax which also helps to rejuvenate the paint by leaving a protective coating over the paint to brings the colour back to life and give it a shiny new car look and feel.

I approached, Dane Wilkinson and Hannah Hastings after I heard so much about the business and great attitude. Low.Co Customs helped me by restoring the body on my R33 Skyline and freshly respraying it black cherry red. The end result is AMAZING, I couldn’t ask for a better product. The attention to detail was impeccable. One thing I really liked was their attitude towards the job. They took it in and had it finished in just under a week with no drama whatsoever. I found the experience overall very enjoyable and I’m super stoked with the final product. I would highly recommend Low.Co Customs for any paint or panel work. The overall result is outstanding.
After being consistently disappointed with the service and finish of local painters, I gave Dane at Low.Co a go at painting my drift car’s bodykit…. after 5 cars and my boat, He’s currently on my 6th, worth the 2 hour drive to the Gold Coast each time in my opinion, not just for the quality work, but for the service, communication and friendly attitude you get from the staff. Nothing is EVER a hassle for these guys.
