  Streetneat and family have now moved to NZ as of 14 December 2008. Going against the tide of kiwi Migration we were looking for a new lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of Brisvegas. We found Utopia in the form of a rundown 3.5 acre farm in the hills of Waingaro North Island NZ. If  anyone really needs to get in contact with us they can do so by one  or both of two means; Leave a post on the front page of Oldholden  ( preferred) or  you can leave a message on  my cell which wont work out here in the hills - but does work when I go to town. That number is 027 307 1967. It may take a while to get back to you by  that method! I'm not handing out  our email address via the net at this stage as we are not currently an operating business. So please dont be offended.  As of this update  of late August 2009  we are still in  establishment mode  getting our  renovations sorted .  so stay tuned for  further updates. In the mean time visit the sheds gallery www.streetneat.com    The  17 year history of streetneat  in Australia is recorded below. 
Streetneat


Located at 37 Kinross Rd Thornlands,(Brisbane, Queensland -Australia) in the most unlikely setting of the families Poultry Farm -Street Neat Panels Rod & Custom was formed in July 1992 by Husband and Wife team Andrew & Kim Clatworthy. The growing need for a solely restoration only operation placed streetneat away from the regular smash repair industry. So a restoration service was born using a network of like minded craftsmen in their respective fields. Streetneat has been able to offer a total restoration service by supplying the best quality parts or services at the right price or sometimes just recommending the right person for the job.


Aside from the many restoration projects for customers - mainly concentrating on Aussie an USA brands, Andrew and Kim built many of their own award winning Hot rod and Custom projects as well as a series of their own resto projects. Some of these Projects set new trends and the main goal was to be the innovators and not the imitators. Take the time to browse through the pictorial sub albums for a more in-depth overview of some of these projects.


These days the operation has shifted a little away from the major restoration jobs and more towards the refinishing side of the industry Graham Carr - from Carr Creations (0411 588 272) has taken over the painting side of streetneat. With the combined experience of over forty years, Streetneat and Carr Creation are able to turn out top quality results at an affordable price. All work is still done on the premises in the fully equipped modern workshop with the same acute attention to detail that streetneat has been renowned for - giving Andrew more time for completing the backlog of his own personal projects. Due to the waiting lists of clients we have to get through, and keeping it fair for all- we are only taking on jobs we can turn around inside three - four weeks.... as we only work on one car at a time.

The main aim of this website is to educate and showcase what goes into turning out a restoration project of well above average caliber- something the enthusiasts of today are demanding more so than ever. Hopefully with knowledge gained from visiting this site enthusiasts can be well armed with information when approaching their own projects. No longer do enthusiasts need to 'fly blind' and have little idea of what to expect from the third parties that inevitably will have to perform some of the more difficult tasks required for vehicle restoration. Knowing what to look for will definitely lead to better decisions being made - especially in regards to body and paint.
