Top 5 Tips For Repairing & Restoring An Old Car
For many people car restoration is a way of life and not just a hobby. Have you
recently bought a car and no experience on to deal with its restoration? Then first
step towards repairing it up can prove to be a daunting task.
Here are a few tips that can help you in repairing and restoration of your car.
Tip # 1 – Repairing & Restoring A Car Is Quite Similar To Building A House.
That’s how it should be done and it’s more logical. Nobody builds the roof
before the foundation. The first thing to do in any restoration is to figure out
what has to be done exactly, and then make a whole list of the restoration
project to stay away from missing something which is important, or can
damage a refurbished bodyline or fresh paint job.
After you have finished with an overview, put things in order and execute it
into a plan. Considering the repairs you are planning to make, it's a good idea
to work in this order: engine, transmission, suspension, electrical, interior,
body and then the wheels.
Tip #2 – No matter how tough your old car has been made, it will show its
downsides with time, especially on the freeway. If there’s a need of stripping
the car down to the undercarriage, then you should sound-proof the car with
insulating foam, spray undercoating or reflective insulating covers. If you want
to minimize noise coming from metal air ducts or fender voids, then a highly
effective way is to do an undercoating which helps to reduce vibration through
Tip #3 – There are various grades of steel wool meant for a wide range of uses.
It can be utilized for different types of auto parts and car accessories, such as
glass, chrome, stainless steel and other materials, without any cases of surface
scratching. To brighten stainless to a high luster, you can use it with chrome
Tip #4 – Putting tape while painting protects trim and windows, but increase
the chances of tearing off a freshly painted surface if tape is not used properly.
You can use a hair dryer, which is a simple yet effective way to get standard
tape off without ruining the finishing of the car paint. As you peel the tape
from the car, gently heat it by using a hair dryer.
Tip #5 – While gluing vinyl or leather material onto seats or panels, blots of
contact can appear on the material. Wrap a little bundle of vinyl or aluminum
duct tape around your fingers, and ensure that the adhesive side stays out.
The glue will come right up, when you’ll pat the glue spots with tape. This
technique will help you to get success in nearly impossible tasks.
Two most common questions often asked by owners of classic cars are “how to
sell my old car” and “where to sell my old car”. If you also own Collector Cars
then find a buyer online to sell your old car.
