Muscle Car Restorations Process
Restoration Assessment and Free Estimate
If you’re muscle car has been in an accident, or your vehicle has damage you will first need to drop off your vehicle. We know many people like to email us or text pictures and request estimates but this is not the best way, because we might quote too high or too low. Your muscle car needs to be seen by our technician in person, in order to evaluate the work and labor needed to give new life to your classic. Once we accurately assess the damage of your muscle car you will receive a free estimate.
Muscle Car Body Repair
After we assess the entire damage to your vehicle, we begin the auto body repair process. In this stage is we remove all your car’s parts which require repair or replacement. We will also work on repairing your auto’s body and structure. On a muscle car this step is very important because it requires a lot of time and skill to get the body curves and lines straight.
Muscle Car Painting and Polish
Once we complete the body work, your vehicle will start the paint and polish process. Before we apply paint we find your exact car’s color match utilizing computer technology or apply the unique color you have picked. Decals and racing stripes are added after the entire car is painted. Your vehicle is then polished and prepared for reassembly.
Your vehicle is then reassembled with exterior parts like grills, lights, doors, and other parts involved in your restoration. Usually these exterior parts are new, or chrome dipped. Once assembled, your car enters a final quality control check.
Clean Car and Detail
Before you can pick up your car we complete a wash final detail. This step gives us a last chance to find any errors and repair them.
