Who are The Surgery

Owner / Director

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus

Highly experienced, dedicated team of craftsmen

Our experience of over 30 years in the classic car restoration and repair industry is yours to be called on. We will empower you with detailed costings of your project, so that you can make informed decisions. During your car restoration project, we will take photos of the work that needs to be done, update them as the work progresses and email them to you, so that you are in the picture at all times. Our services are completely personalised, and you will be kept in the loop on a regular basis throughout the entire project. We’re happy to undertake projects ranging from small, specific areas requiring rust repair, partial restoration, full restoration, to one off design and build projects. The team at The Surgery prides itself on a unique mix of creative and innovative abilities, combined with sound Kiwi practicality and a “can do” attitude.

I am a twenty-three year old car enthusiast. I have been working at the surgery for roughly 3 years now with almost 2 of those years spent working on my apprenticeship (collision repair) with the help of the team at the surgery. I have spent much of my young adult life working on my own cars as well as my friends’ cars teaching myself new skills as I go.

I’m a Brit, and avid tea drinker, the only thing I love more than working on classic cars is my doggo.  I got fed up with Brexit negotiations so I bought myself a plane ticket to NZ.

For a time I also worked for a company in the UK where

Killian Baker

Panel Beater

I started working at the surgery in March of 2020. I grew up around classic cars and I started working on them in my early teens. As far as I can remember working on vehicles and building things has always been a passion of mine. When I’m not messing around with vehicles I spend my time producing music and building my skills as a digital artist.
