Whether you’re a first-time classic car enthusiast or have been a long time collector, by now, you know the importance of getting your vehicle modified or restored by our team of passionate Sydney technicians. When you take the time to ensure your vehicle looks its best, whether this is a new or classic car, it won’t go unnoticed out on the road.
Regardless of the age of your vehicle, the durability of your car is dependent on restoration and maintenance in a timely manner. Cars decay over time if not well maintained, especially when minor scratches go unnoticed and parts go unchecked. As a specialised team in car restoration, we have all the right equipment to manage any repair work that needs to be undertaken, and we do so at competitive prices.
For every classic car, hot rod or modern vehicle that comes through our garage doors, you can be confident that it will get the best treatment with a result you can take pride in. Our customers can expect transformative outcomes when our professionals personalise their service to get the detail and showroom shine your car deserves.
Planning Your Classic Car Restoration
Owning a vintage or classic car is a dream of many; however, they usually are bought in a state of needing a makeover. When they’re looking their best, a classic car turns heads. We understand that car restoration is a decidedly delicate project because we not only need to restore your ride to its original condition but often, especially with a classic vehicle, it is a project that a lot of time and money has gone into.
When planning your classic car restoration, we recommend you clearly understand what level of repair you want our team to undertake, whether having genuine parts is essential, and if you plan on undertaking any of the project yourself. By making a plan, you and our team clearly understand a starting point and how the restoration will continue to get the car back to its former glory.
While it may seem like you may only need to repair a little here and there to get it up to scratch, there are many time-consuming processes involved. Steps typically include disassembly, paint removal, cleaning or replacing rusted nuts, panel fabrication, protective coatings, and so much more. This is why planning is an essential part of the restoration process.
When engaging a team of professionals, such as the Eightyeight Detailing technicians, you likely want to hand over the entire project to them, given their expertise; however, we know that some classic car enthusiasts like to be involved, too. Your car can be restored more seamlessly by knowing your limits and planning out what you want to do, and by keeping in control of what is handed over to the specialists. Without proper planning, you’re likely to lose sight of the end goal, enjoy the process less and end up in a situation where your car – new or old – doesn’t get the finish you wanted.
