Vintage car restoration: a labour of love
When it comes to vintage car restoration, your primary goal should be preserving the look and feel of the past. Working with vintage cars takes patience, time and knowhow, not to mention a space to work in and the right tools. If you lack any of these, British Auto Specialists in Calgary is equipped to help you every step of the way.
The Auto Restoration Process
There are a number of elements that go into an auto restoration project in Calgary. However, they can be viewed under three main categories: engine, body and interior.
Keeping the Look of the Past
It may be tempting to give your vintage car some modern updates with a new stereo or navigation system, but you should resist the temptation.
A proper restoration uses original parts, pieces and paint colours in order to preserve the look and character of years gone by. It’s important to keep the original steering wheel, dash, stick, lights and all other elements of the interior and exterior. If the parts are beyond repair, try to find original replacements. We’re almost always able to find the perfect parts for the restoration projects we take on.
