In his late teens Matt began working in a small restoration shop after hours and on weekends. There he learnt many aspects of restoring cars and custom painting. Matt learnt on the tools and helped bring to life many beautiful cars over many years. It was during these years that Matt went back to school to study automotive refinishing to further his knowledge and skills in the industry.
About the shop…
What type of work do you do?
specialize in restoration (rust repairs etc) and custom paint work on all makes and models. They also do small smash work and motor bikes.
What do you like about DNA?
Amazing quality custom paint that’s Australian, support like no other and a price that’s fantastic for the customer. I love the range of colours and types of paint, and the continual development of new paints is exciting.
What do you like about your job?
It’s a very rewarding job. You are bringing someone’s dream to life, or giving their pride and joy a freshen up. I love seeing it go through all it’s stages, from a rust heap with dents to a straight, shiny and amazing car.
Other hobbies and interests:
I am a massive motor racing fan, and have raced Go-Karts around Victoria. Many a weekend has been spent watching the V8 Supercars and Touring Car Masters at Sandown or Philip Island.
I hope to build a Hewlett Customs race car in the coming years.
I’m very passionate about classic cars, have built a few for my self over time and even have a new project for the shop.
