Restoring vintage cars is a specialist service that not all mechanics are up for.
But with my long history and expertise in brakes – especially when it comes to older cars – I can help you get your old classic back in working order. My vintage car brake repair and restoration services include:
If you’re restoring a car that’s not driveable but needs a brake mechanic, don’t let immobility get in the way. I travel across Melbourne’s South East suburbs and the Mornington Peninsula to my clients’ homes.
Need new parts? Not an issue. My mobile van is fully equipped with tools and parts to get your vintage pride and joy in top-notch condition.
‘Thanks heaps, Tim! Your work is awesome, you are very helpful and know exactly how to fix any brake issue. I’d highly recommend your work to anyone.’
‘Couldn't have been happier. Great guy, very professional and friendly. A really good service.’
‘I engaged Stopfast for a problem with the Brembo system on my 2015 XR8 after a failed diagnosis by my Ford dealer.
Tim diagnosed the problem promptly and fixed it without fuss. It’s fair to say the service I received was excellent.’
‘Tim looked after my boat trailer with new brakes and a service. His knowledge of his trade is extensive. His prices are not over-the-top and I'll happily use Stopfast for many years to come.
I passed on Tim's contact details to the primary school where my children attend for some trailer repairs and servicing. The price again was excellent and the school is more than happy to have Tim back again too.’
‘Tim has just finished installing a Webasto diesel heating system in our new caravan and we are very pleased with the neat, tidy and well-performed work. Over some years now, Tim has looked after a number of vans we have owned and apart from brake and bearing maintenance, he has installed a Dexter Sway Control system, an electric jack, changes to various towing hitches and more.
We regard Tim as a reliable and skilful person whose work is thorough and careful. We highly recommend Tim and Stopfast.’
‘Stopfast was recommended to us by a fellow caravaner. So we travelled from Albury to Mornington for a bearings and brake service. Tim was very courteous and did a tremendous job. He will be working on our caravan in the future. l can highly recommend Stopfast – rarely in the industry do you meet a person as genuine as Tim...👍.’
‘Tim was really efficient and knowledgeable. He has a fantastic service and is a nice fellow.’
‘Tim has serviced our Kimberley Kamper trailer now for two years. After some earlier bad experiences with other mechanics, it's reassuring to have an excellent mechanic that I fully trust. As well as doing a great job on routine maintenance tasks like brakes and bearings, he is versatile and has done an excellent job in the installation of a Dexter electric hydraulic system and Webasto diesel heater. His mobile business is also very convenient. The range of tools and spare parts he has on-hand amazes me. A good communicator and always reliable with dates and times.’
