Workshop Tour

The RPR Workshop

Our ever-expanding workshop is testament to the dedication we put towards supplying all the services needed to rebuild, repair or restore your classic car. We have worked towards building a complete one stop shop approach, whereby all the workshops reside under the same roof from panel to paint, mechanical engineering to assembly and even our own spare parts department.

Body Shop

The body shop is usually where the project begins, where age is removed, steel replaced, dents removed and the chassis gets all the love. Where the best quality reproduction panels can’t be obtained, all work is completed by skilled hands while working in conjunction with the Fab Shop wherever custom sheet metal work is required. The Body Shop can also repair minor dents/scratches/damage to your daily or club car.

Custom Fabrication Shop (RP Racing)

Not all builds are concours/replications and when custom metalwork is required, that’s when parts and projects enter the RP Racing fab room. Here’s just some of the equipment the Fab Shop has: Mill, Lathe, English Wheel, Bead Roller, Sheet Metal Folder, Pipe Bender, Shrinker/Stretcher and TIG/MIG/OXY & Spot Welders.

Paint Shop

With our state of the art spray booth and paint mixing room, combined with using some of the best 2-pack paints available today, our dedicated paint shop can deliver the results your car deserves, whether it be a concours finish, custom paint job or even a refresh for your club car or daily driver. What about detailing your car? The Paint Shop can also give your car a complete Polish/Wax/Detail to your daily driver or get your show car to that perfect, pre-show condition.

Engine Build Room (RP Racing)

Like everything we do here at Rodney Plowman Restorations, attention to detail is everything, especially when it comes to building engines, whether concours, mild or wild. Specialising in squeezing the most horsepower out of your engine, we can increase horsepower whilst still retaining that concours look.

Assembly Shop

This is where the detail comes together, where parts are precision fitted and the project really starts taking shape. Again it doesn’t matter whether your project is concours, reproduction or a custom build, we have all the tools and skill sets for the job at hand.

Mechanical/Service Shop

All cars need love and attention, no matter what their role in your life. Our mechanics can provide minor and major servicing, mechanical repairs and upgrades, with multiple hoist, a huge range of tools and equipment on site.

Dyno Room (RP Racing)

The newest addition to our on-site services is our own Dyno Room with a Dyno Dynamics Dyno, Twin retarder, 2500 RWHP rated. Even if you’re not looking at restoration work, we can still Dyno Tune your street beast, so call us for Dyno booking information.

Spare Parts (The Muscle Car Parts Garage)

When you’re in the business of restoration and modification, especially classic vehicles, having spare parts on hand is a necessity. Importing direct from manufacturers both in Australia and overseas, we stock thousands of Ford Falcon & Ford Mustang parts.

We can also hunt down all those hard to find parts to ensure your build has all the correct parts, and you can now order your own parts online at


Currently a showcase of a collection of rare parts and hand restored parts, customer projects and rotating display stock, in the future our showroom will be transformed into a small retail outlet with racking and displays.
