Business history


Father and son, Terry and Dean Prodger, joined forces in 1995 to take on the world of Panel Beating. Accompanied by wife and mother, Julie, the business is dominated by a family-style atmosphere and is built upon exceptional standards of quality and care. Together they have established the panel works from the ground up, creating one of the most advanced panel shops in the North Coast area.

Meet the team

Business owner, Terry, is a qualified Panel Beater, Fitter and Machinist, and Automotive Air Conditioning Servicer. A lifetime of working with machinery and his hands guarantees the product of a true craftsman. His extensive knowledge and passion for vehicles motivates his work and play.


At his side is co-owner and office Manager, Julie, who has years of experience providing individualised customer service. When she’s not having a chat with the customers, she can be found in the office ensuring that the business’ hub is running smoothly.


Their son, Dean, applies his award winning panel repair and spray painting skills to supervising the paint shop. After his pivotal role in the establishment of the shop, Dean has also expanded his focus by pursuing a parallel business in specialised vehicle restoration.


Both panel and paint shops are staffed by a talented team of tradesmen and apprentices, complemented by a plastic repairs specialist and a car detailing crew. Nothing is overlooked with their detailed checklist procedures, cutting edge equipment and value-adding ideas.
