Before starting any classic vehicle restoration project, it is essential to take two factors into account: the work plan and the available budget. We recommend being realistic when establishing the budget that you are going to invest in the restoration, because it is difficult to know in advance how much you are going to pay for parts and labour. Typically, restorations take a long time, so most of the budget can end up in labour. Owners who want to save a few pounds, learn to do some simple jobs on their own.
We recommend that you be methodical and organized if you want the restoration project to come to fruition without major problems. In that sense, it is essential that you understand what are the priority tasks that you must carry out according to your initial budget. For example, priority jobs might be engine repair or body rebuilding and secondary jobs might be car repainting, which you can do at the end of the process.
