The Ultimate Guide to Clasiq Car Restoration

Date: 29 January 2019

As you might have guessed all things ‘classic car’ are our passion here at Clasiq. And, not only do we love driving classic cars, we love getting our hands dirty and restoring them too. To this end, we’ve compiled this handy guide on how to go about restoring a classic car along with some handy tips, tricks and things to look out for.

Firstly, It's of the utmost importance that we plan well in advance. Having an idea of what you want to do will make research and planning much easier. The final outcome will actually speak volumes on how well-prepared you were and how much forethought and planning was done before the rubber hits the road.

Choosing the right classic will depend on your time, money and, importantly, the condition of the car you are restoring. While most pistonheads say ‘yes’ to any project car, knowing if you can make it will mean the difference between a truly successful restoration and one doomed to fail.

As the saying goes, failing to plan is to plan to fail.

Us pistonheads are always looking for the next car restoration project. It's easy to take on a handful of old cars and start working on them, but finishing the task is always the hard part.

A fully restored classic will be your pride and joy, and like many of our ‘stories’ illustrate, the finished article will be much more than just a restored car — it will be your baby.
