groupGadenne Motor Trimming was started some 27yrs ago by former owner John Gadenne , in June 1996 the business was purchased by Hilda & Trevor Watts. Trevor has over 40 yrs experience in the Motor Trimming industry & was the founder of Trevor the Trimmer in Brisbane where he had a successful business in Albion for many years.

Since taking over Gadenne Motor Trimming in Maroochydore Sunshine Coast our son Brenden joined the business where he was trained by Trevor as a apprentice Motor Trimmer & is now a qualified Motor Trimmer. Brenden’s skills have produced many photo’s & editorials in Motor magazines over the past years. One such special feature was Street Commodores 2008 car of the year with Gavin Bedford’s Commodore ” PUMPED “.

Our services include retrims, custom, restoration & leather interiors, convertable soft top repairs & replacement. We also do seat repairs, carpets, motor bike seats, 4Wd canopies, boat seats & covers, caravan interior trim & shade walls.

In 2008 the Gadenne Team took on a project with other local businesses on the Sunshine Coast to rebuild & restore a 1972 HQ Monaro for the TV show Domestic Blitz & the Saez family whose daughter suffers from Tourettes syndrome. We would like to acknowledge those businesses involved in that project.
