Dos & Don’ts of Car Restoration

HomeBlogDos & Don’ts of Car Restoration

Whether you have a classic car you plan to restore or a modern vehicle that needs restoration, there are a few things you should and shouldn’t do to ensure that the car restoration process goes as smoothly as possible. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • DO Your Homework- Finding the right place to manage the details of your car restoration is a must! You don’t want just anyone to work on your car, and you don’t really know what the finished product is going to be. Make sure to ask plenty of questions and get some clarity between you and your restoration specialist ahead of any car restoration work.

Dos & Don’ts of Car Restoration

  • DON’T Pester the Car Shop Workers- It’s likely that yours isn’t the only car that they are working on, and it might take them some time to get the parts needed to complete car restoration with the attention to detail it deserves. It’s ok to check in once in a while, but it isn’t recommended that you call or drop in all the time.
  • DO Look for Specialty Parts- Depending on the type of car you are having restored, some parts are harder to find than others. Especially if you are planning classic car restoration, looking for those elusive parts that are special to your car can be beneficial. While we can try to help you out with this process, it will speed up the process if you have already found some of the parts for us.
  • DON’T Throw Away Parts- Every car comes with some parts that are removable. The last thing you should do, however, is throw away the removable parts you think you might not need during car restoration. Keeping everything until the restoration is done will ensure that you have everything you need to get to the finished product.
