We've all heard a few stories about shoddy mechanics or restorers. How about some stories about the good ones? It seems many across Australia are seeking businesses worthy of being trusted with our beloved Kombis. Please consider listing your favourite businesses here with location and specific experiences (with a bit more info than "this bloke is good"). Brisbane: We have been using Custom VeeDub at Stafford since we bought Isabell earlier this year. We have dealt with Pete the mechanic there and found him to be enthusiastic, prompt and thorough, he explains things or shows us in a way that doesn't leave us feeling like idiots. While we have only been using this business for servicing and engine repair to date, we believe they do resto work too. Bribie Island: Pete sent our motor to Conti Engines on Bribie Island for full reconditioning of the 1976 2 litre engine. This cost just over $4000 about a month ago. It came back purring and to date we have been extremely happy with the work done. Previously the motor blew enough smoke to rival a World War II smokescreen; she is now a non-smoker and will live to be 100. Any others?
