For those people in Melbourne needing upholstery repairs and recovering done by an old-school master craftsman, I can highly recommend Ross Miller at Ashwood. He has now repaired several cars for me and does fantastic quality work for very little $. I have recommended him to a few French car nuts over the years, and everyone has been very happy with the results.


His number is 9807 9769. Ross is a lovely bloke and very reliable.

While we're on the subject of old-school repairers, does anyone happen to know where I can find a panel beater who is really good with rust repairs and panel-beating without relying on bog, and who doesn't charge like a wounded bull? I am restoring a DS21 Safari with some 'challenging' rust and panel issues, and would like to try to find an old-school panel beater who has the skills (and time) to repair it properly.
