What to Look for When Restoring Classic and Muscle Cars

If you’re crazy about classic and muscle car restoration in Ft. Myers Florida, you know how many headaches just one restoration can cause you.

How Much Does a Classic and Muscle Car Restoration Cost?


Yet, sometimes our love for the restoration wins over the problems it can cause.

So, if you’re hoping to start working on a new-to-you classic and muscle car in the near future, here are a couple of areas you’ll want to pay attention to during the restoration process.


Frame & Body

When you’re starting to restore your classic or muscle car, the first thing to consider is the condition of the frame and body to make sure it is as rust-free as possible and still a solid car.

You really don’t want any surprises.

I once had a customer bring me a car and as we got into the project we found that the person who worked on the car before-hand used 11 license plates to fill in a hole in the body.

Ensure that the vehicle is as solid as it can be…


Engine

It’s hard to know what a car has been through with out-and-out certainty.

A previous owner might not have taken good care of this car, so be very cautious when you check the engine. Check all of the fluids and put the car through rigorous tests.

New, complete engine packages are often the best way to go for a restoration project.


Upholstery and Paint Job

There are lots of great tutorials out there in Florida how to make simple repairs yourself, and sometimes a spanking paint job can breathe new life into a classic and muscle car.

But high-quality paintwork needs to be done by a professional.

People who have a little bit of time, money and determination will most likely find restoring cars – especially classic and muscle cars – to be a lot of fun.

Read the above points cautiously to make yourself prepare for your next classic and muscle cars purchase in Florida.
