Are you trying your best to save money by going to the “restoration” facilities who call themselves a “specialty shop” on working on your particular car? Only to find out that when your car has been completed that you need to have a portion of the work redone?
“I just paid to have that done”, is what I commonly hear from disgruntled customers. “I thought my car looked great when I picked it up and paid the bill.”
When it rains, their car is getting wet on the inside; the windows and doors don’t fit properly; the exterior stainless steel moldings are not properly sealed and installed causing damage to their carpet, headlining, rear package tray and trunk lining. The interior fabric gets soiled and ruined by the water coming into all of the unprotected passages.
If you have your car restored by a professional you will not have this problem. I have spent the last 40 years perfecting the quality of my work.
Do it once and do it right.
