The Luxury Car Restoration Process

The Consultation

At the consultation we will talk about your vision and how we will make it happen.  We will assess your car to see if their is any body damage that needs repair, such as rust, and other body repair.  Let us know if you want to make any modifications, what colorsstripes, and finishes you want.  The end result of the consultation will be an initial estimate.

The initial estimate is a preliminary estimate.  It can be your only estimate as long as no additional damages are discovered during the restoration process, and you do not add, change or modify to the work of your original vision.  Last minute changes are common in these types of projects and they do include additional costs.

The Body Work

The body work will be done by our bodyman technician.  He will repair any collision damage, remove rust, straighten panels, etc.  As with every stage of the process we ask that you be patient because attention to detail is very important in each step.  Sometimes we have to order parts that are hard to find, or no longer are in production and we need to take our time to solve the issue or fabricate them ourselves.

Ultimately our goal is that all the panels fit and the lines of your car are seamless.  This prepares your car for a great paint job.

The Paint Job

We always recommend our client get a professional body repair job.  Clients who want to save money by doing the body work themselves or take their car to a cheap shop in hopes that the paint job will cover all the mistakes.  This is a myth.  Paint does not fix crooked lines, or uneven panels, huge gaps, and parts not installed correctly.  Bondo can only fix so much and it can’t repair body work.  In other words, a professional body repair is key for a good paint job.

A luxury car’s paint job starts with bondo and plenty of sanding.  We go to great lengths to take our time, use the right materials, and do things right the first time.  The extra steps we take will give you the best outcome and save you money in the long run.   And if you sell your car down the line, it might make you money.

Our paint technician makes sure all the lines are straight, there’s no gaps, all the panels and parts are in their proper place.  With that out of the way, the paint technician will apply primers, sealers, base coats, color coats, and top coats.  These are often done several times each and sanding happens in between each coat.  Once painting is complete you car will get a expert detail and is ready for you to cruise.

From Oh No! to Oh YES!

We invite you to take a look at our before and after pictures and see just a few vintage car restorations we have worked on for our clients.  We have worked on cars like the Karma, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Mercedes, Lexus, Audi, Infiniti, and BMW.  Expensive cars take time, but we think it’s worth the wait.  Wouldn’t you agree?

“Need body work and a paint job? THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!! Don’t let the tight parking and driveway fool you. This man is top notch. I have a brand new 18 Audi that got hit while I was parked. I wanted to get the best job done being it was brand new and I shopped around and checked out the web. Thank God there are peeps like Jaider out there.

Don’t believe me, stop by and check it out. You won’t be disappointed. My car looks like it never was touched.  Thanks Jaider”
