Brake components on demand

23 November, 2017



Long known for their expertise in brake resleeving and the remanufacturing of brake parts, Apex Auto Centre can now produce cables and hoses while you wait. This comes thanks to a Cablecraft cable manufacturing system — used by manufacturers such as Boeing, Caterpillar, and John Deere — that can create a custom cable from a drawing or a physical sample, as well as the brake hose manufacturing machine, allowing hoses to be made exactly to order, on the spot. This machine can also manufacture braided brake and oil hoses.

Apex Auto Centre has been specializing in brake systems for 25 years, and as an AA Auto Licensed Repairer, a member of the Motor Trade Association, and the New Zealand Brake and Clutch Association, you know their workmanship is guaranteed. 

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
