|Put Some Life Back in Your Ride|
At Seibert's, expert car care and maintenance aren't just thing we do for a living. For many of us, they're actually our hobbies, too. We love rolling up our sleeves and tinkering around under the hood; especially with older, vintage cars.
Are you thinking of renovating your own ride in the near future? We've got a few suggestions to get you started and keep the project going strong.
- Commit - Restoring a car can be a tedious and time-consuming process - not to mention expensive. Before you get started, make sure you're aware of the commitment needed to seeing the project through.
- Inspect - Spend some time thoroughly inspecting the in-and-outs of your car, taking note of what you want to renovate. Make a list of parts that can still be used verses those that need replacing.
- Plan - Once your inspection is complete, organize the logistics. Where will you be renovating the car? What tools and parts do you need to order? Do you need to seek outside help for any of the restoration? What kind of time-frame are you looking to complete the renovations in? These are important questions that need answers before you get to work.
- Match - Trying to make too many new adjustments and alterations can actually damage a classic car. Make sure the new parts match the ones you're replacing, and if you're unsure about what parts to order, consult an expert.
- Paint - Re-painting an old car should always be the last step you take when it comes to restoring a car. When it comes to color choices, try to look for a paint shop that specializes in classic car colors. While you're free to choose any color you like, it's always best to find something that closely resembles the original car color.
