About Heritage Car Restoration, European Classic Car Restoration

About Us


New Zealand is home to the most successful and prestige’s yacht building industry in the world, home to the 2017 America’s Cup, its home to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogies and to one of the most prestigious Rugby teams in the world - The All Blacks. 

With a population of 4.5 million people New Zealand is fortunate to be small enough to be instinctively self-sufficient requiring us to be focused and driven, translating into Bodymods company values - proven systems backed with quality trades people who are energetic and focused.  New Zealand is large enough to access modern technologies, materials and world leading techniques whilst receiving global benefits, often being able to take advantage of favourable exchange rates.

We are professional, experienced, thorough, and passionately obsessed with all cars. Working with metal is our obsession, and we pride ourselves in taking special care of every vehicle that visits us. We have the ability to service jobs of all sizes, but our main emphasis is in large structural restoration with a particular interest in dimensional accuracy to ensure your project is correct from the ground up. 

Our team has become very distinctive in their approach to restoration, fabrication and modifications. Bodymods can proudly boast well over 100,000 hours of hands on, body related metal work, spread over many different vehicle manufactures including some extremely large builds, such as full hand-made coach built bodies. Our workload is generated largely via word-of-mouth, and are privileged to have a very solid client base of both repeat and new customers. Supplying services and high-end final products we offer exclusivity and discretion to our clients, our reputation speaking for itself.
