Down Town Kustoms. We are custom vehicle builders, specialising in full builds, from chassis/suspension design and fabrication, sheet metal fabrication and shaping, body work surfacing and paint for muscle cars and hot rods.
I built chassis and suspension set ups for guys at home until the work load became big enough to have a shop.
We opened the doors to Down Town Kustoms eight years ago, in December 2007.
We currently employ six fully-qualified tradesmen, including myself, and itís the people we employ that make the biggest difference. All our guys are highly-skilled specialists in custom car building and restoration.
We really specialise in the full build, going above and beyond where others donít. We pride ourselves in every aspect of our work - there isnít one part of the car that doesnít receive special attention.
We sell a service not a product, and the service people most rely on is our ability to project manage and build complete one-off custom cars.
The only product youíll get from us is a finished product - we donít offer any product to the public, everything we design and make is exclusively for DTK-built cars.
We are constantly developing new and exciting parts and components for our in-house builds. Part of that includes expanding and refining our knowledge so we can continue to creatively engineer solutions for our next big builds.
Yes, we love to collaborate with guys that can provide the same high calibre of work to our customers builds. We bring Taree Auto Electrics into our facility to take care of wiring, and we work closely with Melomotive to stay in tune with the latest body work products and techniques. Weíre also doing great things with CAD Custom at the moment.
We try and use local businesses where possible, but we are constantly bringing in those hard-to-find parts and tools.
All of our work is Australian-based, however one of our clients is from Hong Kong.
We invest so much of ourselves in to every vehicle that every car we build is a great achievement for myself and the team.
Just recently we finished ĎRefinedí FC Ute. It was an unveil car at Meguiarís MotorEx 2015 and took out a whole bunch of awards including Best Engineered, Best Design and Execution, Best Engine Bay, Body Work award and the Pinnacle Street Machine award.
We were really happy with this, and equally happy to have it shot and featured in Street Machine.
Down Town Kustoms is a young, enthusiastic team with the drive to build Australiaís best custom cars under one roof .
