Dream for Perfection
Mini Makeovers was founded through a passion for cars and a passion for perfection. Growing up in the west of Melbourne its not hard to get an enthusiasm for cars. Back in the day young men would spend their weekly wage on their beloved car trying to make it the best looking and sounding car among their friends and foes. Joe and David growing up in the same street were no different. That's where Joe and David's love for the Classic Mini stems from.
Seeing so many of the old classics disappear from the roads, many to the scrap heaps and being turned into scrap metal is a sad reality. This is what drove Joe and David to bring these Classics back to their glory days. The days when one minute the Mini was a daily run about and the next minute it was going flat out around Mount Panorama circuit at Bathurst.
Any Mini enthusiast will know it doesn't take much to fall in love with these pocket rockets. Joe has been around and owned Mini's his whole life. You could say he is a second generation Mini owner, so his passion runs deep. Mechanics by trade, Joe and David would work on Joe's Mini's on weekends trying to get the most out of these small, yet fast engines. They went from tinkering around on their own builds, to rebuilding motors and full spray painting jobs on Mini's for other people. Mini Makeovers was born.
With the desire to restore these old classics and an eye for perfection, they were in demand with customers wanting their Mini's restored. Joe and Dave knew that they needed a bigger place to produce the quality of work they desired. So they moved to a larger building and put on the right staff and made Mini Makeovers what it is today. Mini Makeovers has been actively restoring Mini's professionally for 15 years.
Today Mini Makeovers is Melbourne's number 1 Mini stockist of new and used Mini parts. They source parts all over the world making regular trips overseas. They also do nut and bolt restorations down to the very last detail bringing these Mini's back to life.
