Auto Restoration for Classic Cars’ Owners in Phoenix

Tags : 

A few months ago, we talked about Auto restoration for Classic cars. The preservation and restoration of automobiles is the mechanical or cosmetic repair of cars. For example, the guidelines of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) are to “evaluate an antique vehicle, which has been restored to the same state as the dealer could have prepared the vehicle for delivery to the customer.”

Restoration means removing, replacing, or repairing the parts of a vehicle, while preservation means keeping the original components.

Though automotive restoration is commonly defined as the reconditioning of a vehicle “from original condition in an effort to return it to like-new condition,” There are many styles of which a vehicle can be restored, any of which can be performed at the discretion, desire, or taste of a vehicle owner or restorer.

Are you a car enthusiast? Or do you wonder why some people are so into classic cars? Well, some things just can’t be explained with ordinary words. As a car enthusiast, a vintage vehicle has a lot of appeals. You just want to own them! We don’t mean to burst your bubble, but we have to contribute to your joy of acquiring a ‘new’ vintage vehicle by giving you the assurance of longlasting performance. Before you begin cruising in your vintage vehicle, quite a lot of auto restoration has to be done on your vehicle.

What is Automobile restoration and do you need it?

Tags : 

Automobile restoration is the process of repairing the degraded aspect of an automobile to return it to an overall “authentic” condition. Restorations should be historically accurate as a representative example of the production model. For example, the guidelines of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) are to “evaluate an antique vehicle, which has been restored to the same state as the dealer could have prepared the vehicle for delivery to the customer.” For a great auto restoration to be done, patience is required for it is a long process that takes a couple of days to be completed. Old and relatively new cars that have suffered some damage from the sun, water, or any other sort of damage require auto restoration to get back it’s normal factory appearance. – Wikipedia

However, the cases where a relatively new vehicle needs to go through an auto restoration process are pretty rare because the paints used on modern cars is incredibly resistant and can withstand a high amount of sun damage, water damage and it can even get scratched much harder. Now, regardless of the age of the car, an auto restoration should not be put off for a long time, because the damage can easily spread. So as soon as you have taken the car to an auto body shop and had a repair technician have a look at it, you should also ask him to schedule the auto restoration process.

Otherwise, if you leave your car in the sun for too long, of it is already rusted or scratched, then like we said before, the damage might spread and you might have a lot more work to be done on it. Of course, a lot more work also means a lot more money, so in the interest of saving you both some time and some money, you should hurry up.

Apart from dealing with any paint issues that might need to be fixed, a auto restoration process will also imply getting rid of any dents, scratches or scuffs on the surface of your car. So if you have ever accidentally bumped into a wall (or if a rogue shopping cart has ever bumped into your car) you should consider yourself lucky, because these issues are about to be fixed.

Apart from fixing any dents that your car might have any repair technician in charge with an auto restoration will have to sand it all down and get rid of other issues, such as rust. If left as it is, rust can easily eat away your vehicle and turn it into an unsafe car. Believe it or not, there are a lot of problems that rust could cause your car, so it would be best if you could take care of it as soon as you notice it.

Since you now know when and why your car will need auto restoration, you’d also want to know where to get the best done on your car. It is at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint, the best and most experienced auto body shop in Phoenix. Let’s restore your car to it’s former glory.

Everything about auto restoration

Tags : 

Auto restoration is a pretty serious thing for most car owners and drivers, especially if they happen to own or drive an older car that needs the special attention of a professional team of auto repair technicians. The thing about older cars is the fact that, although their material value drops with “old age”, their sentimental value increases exponentially.

Why is auto restoration needed?

Tags : 

Auto restoration is usually a long lasting process and it can’t usually be done in less than a couple of days. Although it is generally recommended to drivers or car owners who have older vehicles, car restorations can also be done on vehicles that are relatively new but seem to have suffered a lot of damage. When we say damage you should know that we do not necessarily mean dents, scratches and scuffs, but also sun damage or water damage.

We perfectly understand just how appealing an old Chevy or Mustang must look and just how tempting it must be to own a vintage car. However, before you go ahead and make a purchase, you should also know that most of these cars need a pretty intense auto restoration.

Auto Restoration: The Complete Restoration Process (2 of 4)

Tags : 

Auto Restoration

In our last post we discussed the state of a truck we were asked to restore and discussed the pride we take in our work. Today we’re going to show you the preparation work that was done on the truck before the harder work began.

Above we see the truck in its initial state. It’s a little worse for wear, but when we’re done, you won’t be able to recognize it. Below you can see a little more of the sides and that the bed of the truck has been removed. This is done to prepare each and every part for painting.

Once the truck is cleaned of debris, certain parts are removed to allow access. It also allows us to inspect every inch of the truck for structural damage or problems. Certain problems will lead to the need to fully replace parts of the body or the engine itself. The major issues with this truck related to the outer work. There were some areas we needed to address—seen in the images as the dark gray areas as well as some issues with head lights. Much of the truck is still very functional, but it needs a makeover of sorts.

Before the car sees a new coat of paint, we have to prep everything. All rust, dings, dents, and other imperfections need to be addressed and taken care of so the paint will adhere correctly, the body will stay intact, and the truck will look like new with minimal work! Rust or scratches that are not properly prepared will lead to imperfections in the paint job and it will lead to the paint not adhering properly in the long term.

Our technicians use the best tools and equipment available for every job to provide the best final result. We thoroughly clean the metal with the appropriate chemicals and tools (like wire brushes and power brushes) to remove all rust or other related damage.

 

The car is sanded and filler is placed as needed to handle areas in which the paint needed to be removed. Every piece of the truck that will require paint or work is inspected, sanded, filled, and many parts are removed before the painting can begin.

This truck has had the main portion of the truck bed removed before the painting can begin—so paint will be the first big step and we’ll discuss that in the next post. Stay tuned and we’ll give some detailed instructions on how the paint job goes down.

Sam’s auto Body and Paint is here for all of your restoration needs at great prices to keep you and your baby on the road for as long as possible.
