Your Check List For Your Classic Car Restoration Process

Check to see what sort of reputation your shop has before hiring them to restore your car or truck.

One of the best ways to determine if this is the right shop for you, especially if you've never been there for is to take a look at the reviews people have left about that shop. Google and Facebook are too excellent options for checking this.

Check to see if your shop can do restomods BEFORE hiring them IF that's what you're wanting.

Some classic car enthusiasts may prefer to have a classic car or truck but with modern conveniences. That being said, not all classic car shops will offer resto mods, so it is definitely worth asking about if this is something you are interested in.

Check to see how much rust the car has before purchasing it.

How rusty is the car you're looking at?  A severely rusted out car won't be worth the trouble. If you see a bubble or two on a quarter panel, that wouldn't be much of a problem to fix. However, when you can see through the trunk and floors and the sides are all eaten up, there comes a point when your money is better spent finding a nicer car.

Check with your restoration team for an estimate first.

If you're going to invest in a classic car, you should do some research on the potential upkeep and maintenance costs. The last thing you want to do is spend the money to have your dream car restored only to not realize just how much maintenance and upkeep it takes and how costly that can be to keep it in like new condition. Ensure that you get a solid idea of all upkeep and maintenance costs, which include (but are not limited to) rust protection, weatherproofing, and so on.
