Resto My Ride with EJ and an EJ

Rare Spares has kindly donated an EJ Holden for restoration to the EJ Whitten Foundation to raise awareness for the Men’s Health.

Resto my Ride, a documentary currently being filmed at Bodymaster Prestige Paint and Panel is embarking on an Australian first by donating a fully restored EJ Holden to the EJ Whitten Foundation.

Owner of Bodymaster, Declan McKearney says on how the project came about “ What can I do to raise awareness for men’s health. Cars is what I do and that’s when I came up with the idea to restore an EJ Holden for the EJ Whitten Foundation”

The entire restoration is being filmed and will be the launch pad for a new show called “ Resto my Ride”. The first show will follow the restoration journey of the EJ Holden from the ground up whilst also raising awareness for Men’s health and the EJ Whitten Foundation.

The team at Resto my Ride has gained the support of industry heavy weights including 3M, Rare Spares and PPG who have recognised the power is supporting such an initiate.

Lance Corby from Rare Spares is excited to be working with Resto my Ride. Rare Spares have generously donated the EJ Holden and will work closely as official advisors on the build. “ Hopefully this will enable the Foundation to raise awareness and funds for Mens health” says Lance.

A first for Australia, Resto my Ride will be made in to a documentary following the build and the auction at this year’s Grand Final luncheon on September 30th.

“We have approximately 9 weeks. I may have bitten off more than I can chew but we will chew as hard as we can and we will get it done” says Declan.

EJ Whitten Foundation Ambassadors and AFL legends Billy Brownless, Robert ‘Dipper’ Dipierdomenico, Doug Hawkins, Russell Gilbert and Ted Whitten Junior will join together to “ work” on the restoration before it goes to auction at the EJ Whitten Grand Final Luncheon in September.

“I’m told that 9 weeks is going to be achievable. We have to have it at our Grand Final luncheon in September, so they are under the pump“ says Ted Whitten from the E J Whitten Foundation.
