Award winning vehicle restoration detailing since 1988

Before choosing a 'detailer' ask ... 

Would you hire a person without qualification or licence? 

Beware, some with less than 10 years experience call themselves "Pro" & "Master" 

yet hold no credit by a certified Automotive Institution or acquired any Victorian trade certificates.

In fact! they most likely learnt to clean or polish by watching "Youtube".

In 1989 I qualified as a certified custom spray painter &  professional auto body re-finisher in Melbourne, Australia.

"Wow a fantastic feeling driving a car that's been freshly detailed"!  

Mauritz Montesalvo Born in August 1969, star sign Virgo = perfectionist!

A happy husband and proud father... My friends know me as a grand sense of humour and a big personality.

 Loving life, meeting people, travelling, love my pets, and devoted to family and respected by friends... and love restoring cars of course ;-)

I was born into the family panel shop,  My uncle, being a master panel beater & spray painter, introduced me the craft around 1978. I became intrigued loved watching his workmanship on all types of accident repairs. At age 15, I was repairing & painting body work, completing many diverse automobiles.

I learnt skills and 'tricks of the trade' by years of practice & much trial & error, and nights at trade school. I grew a passion for old classics, my dream was to build a 1969 Mustang (dream did come true)

In the mid 80's I indulge my life into cars, taking involvement of most things automotive, hot-rod shows, expos / events, custom modified clubs, magazines & of course collecting & restoring many of my own projects, some great, some not so good. 

In the late 80ies Mauritz was one of the early people in Australia to apply protection systems to new cars, working with a product called “Ming”.

At 21, an accomplished award winning car restorer & custom 'spray painter', and car show entrant.

I love the whole process of changing something from one colour to another, especially seeing a rusty run down white car; turn into a new shining red in just a few weeks… a great feeling of accomplishment. I excelled in custom paint work, pearls, candy, & various special effects and colour mixing.

In 1997 I spent in Italy for 2 years; my skills easily landed me a role as a paint quality inspector and pre delivery detailer for repaired cars, at a family automotive refinishing facility dealership where my projects were Italian vehicles such as Fiat, Alfa and Lancia. 

I consider myself as a quiet achiever as over two decades now operating solely via "word of mouth" clearly means I am doing something good.

I do like to be on the road meeting people from all places, ages, races, religions & colours. 

In the late 90ies till 2009 I became involved with other opportunities outside of the auto industry; I became a very successful night club owner & promotional manager for many venues around Melbourne, whilst only working for selected private car owners & my own projects. 

Now late 40ies, have settled into family life and continue to detail / restore and play with all things auto.

The passion for autos is in my blood 3rd generation now. Working on projects to be looking the best at shows or up for sale or super clean for a magazine. To be involved with the Love others have for their cars, I see it more like a hobby than a job.    

Thanks sincerely for reading....
