Vintage car restoration can be a rewarding and challenging
It requires careful preparation and planning to achieve
a successful restoration - and to finish it on time!
Here are some hints and tips to help you:
- Before you begin, make sure you have all the information
you need. Buy manuals and books and read them thoroughly so you know
exactly what you need to do.
- Budget carefully for any parts you need to buy. Vintage
car restoration can start off cheap and quickly become expensive as
more and more parts are required. A budget enables you to keep track
of costs whilst progressing with the restoration.
- Speak to people who have taken on the restoration
you are about to do. They can be a great source of advice and will save
you hours in your restoration.
- Allow plenty of time for the vintage car restoration.
It may look a quick job, but you'll find time slipping away as the job
gets bigger and bigger!
- Use specialist services to speed up the restoration
process. It can be very beneficial to use outside companies to do small
jobs eg. spraying, cleaning, welding and calibration.
- Ensure that you have all the tools to do the job.
Specialist quality tools make jobs easier and neater. If your tools
are old, update them!
- Use the internet. Search wisely and find sources of
parts, repairs and help.
- Take your time! Some jobs require extra care and attention.
Spend the time and you'll be rewarded with a top quality restoration.
