  Nick Sutic Profile   

Nick Sutic from Detroit Custom Body Works has been involved in the smash repair and restoration industry for almost 15 yrs and is not resting on his laurels just yet. He completed his apprenticeship in a small shop that housed 15 vehicles at a time and was taught air dry enamel and acrylic lacquer. The company has now ceased trading, but was named A.A CUSTOM SMASH REPAIRS in St Peters.

Anthony Atkinson the company owner was an acrylic man through and through and taught Nick the finer points of this forgotten art. Anthony had over 30 years experience in the game and passed all his knowledge and experience down to an eager spray painter willing to learn the trade. His boss stayed true to the old acrylic but the team also used the Spies Hecker 2 pack paint system. Nick over the ensuing years had mastered the Spies Hecker range of paints and some time later the business switched to the Spartan Eurobase paint system as a cost effective means of saving however not compromising the quality of paint finish. After attending numerous paint detailing seminars and courses, Nick had a solid amount of concentrated learning under his belt.

Nick then expanded his horizons further into the field of industrial coatings where one project consisted of construction and paint of all structural beams inside new apartments at Woolloomooloo Waters Apartments. Heavy duty coatings after 2 years proved boring and Nick returned to a mates shop in Artarmon (IMAGE AUTO BODY) to get back into the groove once more. After discovering the hectic pace of the north side unbearable he decided to return somewhere local where the focus is quality not quantity and accepted a job offer at E.R MCNAMARA SMASH REPAIRS ARNCLIFFE.

After working at E.R MCNAMARA for the past 6 years and attaining the role of senior painter and mastering the DUPONT range of paint Nick decided to open his own venture named DETROIT CUSTOM BODY WORKS
