Smash Repairs Brisbane Northside


Little Knocks Services


At Little Knocks not only do we repair your damaged vehicle to a top grade finish, we also offer the highest standards in ceramic paint protection on Brisbane's Northside.

The world class vehicle repairs offered by Scott at North Brisbane’s Little Knocks often exceeds the original factory finish of your vehicle. Once this restoration is complete then your car’s flawless paintwork will be in the finest condition it will ever be in.

To protect your car’s premium paintwork finish from scratches, the elements, pollution, road dust, bird droppings etc, you can apply a protective coating. This is often done by periodically applying a wax or chemical compound sealant. While this option is good for protecting your car, it’s labour intensive and needs to be replenished often. The alternative, is a long lasting, glass hard, ceramic paint protection application.

Ceramic Paint Protection

At Little Knocks we don’t stop at a premium repair finish. We offer a professional grade paint protection service by the industry leader in auto detailing: 3D Paint protection. The 3D ceramic coating is superior to its competitors in its last, shine and hardness. This service is often offered by auto dealers as an add on and can be drastically marked up. At Little Knocks we have found that our prices are significantly cheaper for a product and finish that is guaranteed. 


When it comes to protecting the paint on your car you have a few options that vary in strength, effectiveness, ability and application frequency. Ceramic Coatings are by far the strongest, most effective, and long lasting paint protection method.

Unlike wax, ceramic coatings are nano-glass particles suspended in a liquid. The coating is applied to your vehicles paint where the nano-glass particles adhere to the surface and the liquid evaporates. This leaves a glass hard, hydrophobic protective surface that repels contaminants, protects against UV and even has micro-scratch resistant properties (hardness of 9H pencil). 

The reasons to get Ceramic Paint protection are many, and the value is clear.

  1. Protection. If you wish to sustain the quality of your car’s paint, or protect it from micro-scratches, bird droppings, pollution, UV radiation, then look towards a Ceramic Coating.
  2. Gloss. The clear and glass-hard finish of a ceramic coating provides a very deep gloss that rivals even a double wax of synthetic and carnauba wax, with the added benefit of a coating that does not diminish.
  3.  Time savings. Topgear suggests that you wax your car every 2 months. Preparing and coating your car in a wax is a time and resource costly activity. using a ceramic coating means you get all the benefits of a top quality wax, and more with coatings required every 12 months.
  4. Ease of cleaning. Ceramic coatings are extremely hydrophobic, which means they repel water. Not only is this property ideal for repelling contaminants, it makes washing your car considerably easier. provides a guide on how to properly carry out a maintenance wash on your ceramic coated vehicle here.

Scott and his team at Little Knocks strive for the highest quality finishes in their work, which means using the best tools and materials. If you have ever looked into professional grade car care products, you will know the American manufacturer 3D.

3D has been an industry leader in car detailing products for over 20 years and is the choice for many detailers and auto body shops. The 3D ceramic coating product was developed to match the highest standards of their product range backed by their brand name. Little Knocks chooses to only use the finest products to protect their high quality auto body finishes.

The 3D brand Ceramic Coating that we use at Little Knocks is a high quality professional grade product, which is rated to last (after being expertly applied by our automotive pain specialist) approximately* 12 months before a maintenance or re-application is required. 

* The amount of longevity you will get from your ceramic coating will depend on many factors including where you park your car, how often you use it, where you live and how you wash and maintain your car.

Find a Ceramic Coating Guide here:

A ceramic coating is expertly applied in less than a day by Scott, our automotive paint technician. Once applied your car will need to cure inside our workshop for at least 24 hours. Optimal curing will take up to 7 days, so within this time you will need to ensure your car is adequately protected. 

The cost of ceramic paint protection is often over inflated by some car dealerships as a way to add profit to a sale. Inflated prices can start at $800 and can go into the thousands. In actuality the costs for a quality ceramic coating are considerably lower than this and is reflected in Little Knocks Ceramic Paint Protection starting at $400.

I came across an accident while parking on street. These guys get my car really well treated, their quote is 2k cheaper than one chain repairer. Get my car washed before delivery. Appreciate it as they are a good part of this unpleasant experience. From sincerity rather than anyone's requirements

I had MAJOR rust damage on my sprinter van in several places, to the point where the spreading rust cracked the windscreen (they put in a new one). After 15+ phone calls to other businesses telling me they weren't interested, Scott and Lee gave me a quote within hours. They turned the vehicle around extremely quickly and it legitimately looks better than when I bought it. If your vehicle is part of your business, you can't afford to have it sitting around. Don't hesitate to go with these guys, pricing was very fair and their professionalism and passion to help with repairs in unmatched. Despite being located in inner-city Brisbane, I'll be making the trip to Brendale every time if more work ever needs to be done. Thanks!

Took my Smart Fortwo 451 to them for paint n panel TLC, their quote was competitive, they very responsive and polite, and suggested some further enhancements they could do - rub back the polycarbonate sky roof and finish in new clear coat, and also refurbish dull cloudy headlights.Their paint and repair of parking lot scrapes were excellent, paint match of metallic colour was perfect, the sky roof was one of the first they've done to refurbish to factory ..end result was sensational !!! like a new car, as we're the headlight lense refurb. Just fantastic. I have other cars with a few knocks and scrapes and I would have no hesitation giving them to these guys. It also helps they are big fans of Smart cars, but also just downright excellent to deal with, on time, and good value. 6 stars!!!

Very professional, came to the house for the quote, emailed it straight to me, no hassle. Went to some others and I didn’t receive a written quote, one didn’t even ask my name!I booked my car in with Little Knocks and three days later I have a bright shiny virtually new car. Very happy with the guys.
