All expectations were met and exceeded

1988 Ford Courier SandblastingTo Dave, Rob and team Autoblast, In 1988 New Zealand just won the 1st ever Rugby World Cup 1987 also my dreams were made, a 3rd generation building son. The start of my 1st year carpentry apprenticeship, compulsory Maori Boys Hostel, New Market, Carrington Polytech. The dream in 1988 was to own the builders most preferred and desired 1988 Ford Courier. Finally the opportunity came in Feb 2024 when i purchased a 1988 Ford Courier Ute (half cab, coup?), that need a lot of attention and love. The 1st mention ofAutoblast was through a family friend James ‘Customs’ Iaveta, there are not too stories/referrals that really live up to the hype (don’t believe the hype)… But in my own personal experience with the team at Autoblast all expectations were met and exceeded. My much loved 1988 Ford Courier Ute looks like it just came off the assembly line at the Ford factory in South Auckland. So ‘Amazing’ Team. Making the decision to invest into Autoblast is money and time, for me has already paid itself off by bringing my dream alive, South Auckland needs Autoblast. It’s been a pleasure and the highest praise one man can give from the Land of the Red, White and Blue (South Auckland, Otara) is “Chur ma boy-ees”

Outstanding Job

Just want to thank you very much for doing an awesome job on the Ute . I’ve had a good look at it today and I’m amazed at the quality of the job. I also took it to Bishops Garage in Auckland for new discs and they too said it was an outstanding job. Thanks again for great service.

These guys are amazing!!

David goes massively out of his way for his customers.
I came from out of town the first time and they organised an out of hours drop off and pick up on a Sunday to accommodate me!!
The second time they kept their workshop open after closing to finish the job as I had advise them earlier I would be late.
Unbelievably great service, I have had the spray valve and standard treatments. Both extremely impressed with. These guys are the real deal, top job, top service .
Thanks a lot!!

“Discovering AutoBlast was like finding an oasis in the desert.”

Discovering AutoBlast was like finding an oasis in the desert. All the bad news turned into good and I was delighted with the service provided from initial assessment to completion.
My LR Discovery was given the full underbody treatment including sandblasting, zinc alloy spray, epoxy prime + topcoat and Dinitrol chassis cavity spray.
The pricing for all this work was very fair and an excellent investment to keep my workhorse in great condition underneath for a good few years.
Anybody whose vehicle needs serious sandblasting and top-class protection should just head straight here.

“Zinc/alu spray system simply amazing…”

Holden Monaro HQHi Dave, just a few words of thanks for the outstanding work you have done on my HQ Monaro. Your honest opinion was very reassuring and the end result backs up your statements. I am simply amazed at the zinc/alu spray system that you have as well; the sandblasting through to the 2k etch primer is very satisfactory.
The finished result from your work on the body shell is awesome and I’ll continue to use your services for stripping the many other parts.

“From sows ear to silk purse…”

Mini Cooper restorationJust a note to let you know how pleased I was with the job done on my mini shell. You took delivery of a bit of “a sows ear” and gave me back a “silk purse”. It made the job of panel repair so much easier.
The job itself was a bit bigger than I had imagined but your timeliness, customer service and price made it all the more painless.
Thanks very much indeed.
