Automotive fabrication Brisbane—expert guide

What is automotive fabrication?

Automotive fabrication is the process of modifying vehicles with engineering and fabrication techniques. It’s a form of vehicle engineering that can include cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, heavy machinery, or any other type of vehicle that requires modification. Some examples of automotive fabrication jobs include custom ute trays, body and chassis repairs, towbars, roll cages, and turntables, but it can include pretty much any type of vehicle modification.

What is custom ute tray fabrication?

Custom ute tray fabrication is the process of designing and fabricating trays for utes. Custom trays are usually designed to suit a particular trade or purpose, or achieve a desired look.

To be roadworthy, and to prevent road accidents, custom ute trays must be well-designed and tough, encompassing a range of engineering and fabrication techniques to create them.

Do custom cars require automotive fabrication?

Custom cars require extensive automotive fabrication work. This includes designing and fabricating the car’s entire body/shell, creating custom exhausts, custom brackets, roll cages, tanks, air boxes, and a whole lot more.

Does automotive fabrication include heavy vehicle modifications?

Every industry has unique challenges, and sometimes, heavy vehicles need to be modified to meet those challenges. Heavy vehicle modifications fall under automotive fabrication, and a typical modification job will include a thorough consultation to understand what the vehicle needs to do, before designing and fabricating the solution.

Some examples of heavy vehicle modifications:

  • Increasing the number of seats for a mineral exploration vehicle
  • Enlarging a vehicle’s fuel tank
  • Installing transportation racks for a truck

As long as the vehicle remains safe to operate, the sky’s the limit with heavy vehicle modification.
