Steves love for cars started at a very young age with his panel beating career beginning more than 33 years ago.​ He has experience as a Motor Vehicle Repair Assessor and has managed various Panel Shops over the years.

Having owned a successful Panel Repair Shop in Heidelberg for many years a move closer to home was in order.


Steve established Melbourne Panel & Paint in 2014,  specialising in all automotive repairs and paint work, restoration, customisation & insurance repairs. Anything you need painted in 2 pack paint whether cars, bikes, home items such as doors, splash backs etc or creative display pieces. 

Steves creative side led him to establish Melbourne HydrographiX Depot along side Melbourne Panel & Paint shortly after.


Steve and Melbourne HydrographiX Depot, now lead the way in all things Hydrographic in Melbourne.
