Ken has had a love for cars since the young age of five. He’s passionate about anything with a motor. His list of skills is very long and include Fabrication, File Finishing, Welding, Lead wiping and Spray Painting, just to name a few. He learnt the trade from Old School Panel beaters early in life and began his trade officially way back in early 2001. He then started his own business almost 10 years later. Ken has rebuilt many Classics and Resto Mods over the years including a couple of Mad Max Interceptors.

Claire has always had a love of Cars and Bikes. She restored her very first car, a LH Torana with her Dad at the early age of 17. Since then she has owned many Classics. Her current passion lies with her beloved LX Hatchback Torana. Claire’s meticulous attention to detail is painstakingly thorough and precise. She’s just as particular with customers cars as she is with her own.

Hamish is a guy you can't keep down, his work ethics is unquestionable. You couldn't find a harder worker if you tried. Since he has been with our company Hamish has always had a great willingness to learn new things and take on board a challenge or two. He has moved from up north back to Brisbane to be with his family. His previous job was a Car Detailer and Polisher so his attention to detail is outstanding. He knows the value and look of a great finish.
Killer Finish Automotive Custom Restorations was founded in 2013 as an expansion of Ken’s mobile business which had been producing quality repairs and part time Resto Mods for more than a decade prior.
The dream started out on a relatively small scale which grew rapidly over the years and is still growing today. The Killer Finish team now comprises of four carefully selected members who hold over 80 years of combined experience.
Some old school and some modern.
Their experience is continually expanding though, as they are always learning new techniques and trialling new products on a regular basis. Yearly Colour matching and Welding courses and Bi-annual trips to the SEMA trade show in Vegas ensure the team is kept well informed at all times. This helps to stay one step ahead and gives their customers the very best experience available each and every time.
Kens’ dedication, attention to detail and ‘can do’ attitude has helped him meet and exceed the needs of his customers and their friends and family along the way. He has never said No to a challenge and will grasp every opportunity that is thrown his way, even when others have said it can't be done.
