If you are in the initial stages of getting your classic car restored, we have created some helpful advice to make sure you make the right decisions and understand just how we can help.
What’s your Budget?
Depending on your situation, you may find yourself looking into purchasing a classic car in the first instance. This is the pivotal stage, where as long as you are making an informed choice, you will understand what make and model classic car you could comfortably afford to restore. Alternatively, you may already have a pre-loved classic vehicle in your possession that you are looking to return to its former glory. Chances are in this situation you will be very clued up and be seeking the most cost-effective restoration solution.
Depending on your motor knowledge, you should be able to take an inventory of everything that needs to be done. This should include everything that needs to be done to complete the project, from paints to tyres, to panels and doors. Do you have the right specialist tools? Do they need to be purchased on top of components and parts? The list just goes on, and is very daunting, especially if it’s your first project.
One thing to mention is that whatever figure you come up with, it will over-run; by up to 30% in some instances.
What’s Your Timeframe?
Getting hold of parts can also be a time-consuming part of a restoration, specialist garages have many sources and resources that they have gathered over their time, you on the other hand, have not!
The thought of restoring a classic car yourself may sound like the ideal hobby, but with limited time, you could find it very frustrating. You may even find yourself falling into the trap of wanting to redo and carry out previously done jobs as you become more proficient! It is usually at this point that many admit defeat and decide to get the help of a profession, for the sake of their sanity!
