Classic Car Restoration

Restoring a classic car is a meticulous and comprehensive process. While each case is unique, here’s an overview of how Hillwood Autos might restore your classic car:

  • Inspection and Evaluation: The restoration process typically begins with a thorough inspection and evaluation of your classic car’s condition. Our team will assess the overall state of your vehicle, identifying areas that require repair, replacement, or restoration.
  • Goal Setting: Hillwood Autos will chat with you to establish your restoration goals, such as preserving originality, achieving a concours-quality finish, or customising certain aspects while retaining the vintage charm.
  • Disassembly: Your classic car is carefully disassembled, with all parts labelled and documented to ensure proper reassembly.
  • Bodywork and Rust Removal: If your car has rust or body damage, we will meticulously remove rust, repair dents, and restore the body to its original shape.
  • Panel Fabrication and Replacement: For severely damaged body panels or hard-to-find parts, it may be necessary to fabricate custom panels or source authentic replacement parts.
  • Engine and Mechanical Restoration: We will refurbish or rebuild the engine, transmission, suspension, and other mechanical components, ensuring they function as close to the original specifications as possible.
  • Electrical System: Your classic car’s electrical system is carefully inspected, repaired, and rewired if necessary to ensure proper functionality.
  • Interior Restoration: Our team can restore your car’s interior, including upholstery, dashboard, trim, and any other interior components, either preserving original materials or sourcing accurate replicas.
  • Paint and Finish: After thorough preparation, the car is primed and painted with high-quality paint that matches the original colour or custom finish, depending on the restoration goals.
  • Reassembly: With all components restored or replaced, our team will reassemble your classic car, paying attention to every detail to achieve a top-quality finish.
  • Testing and Fine-Tuning: After reassembly, we will conduct thorough testing and fine-tuning to ensure your classic car performs optimally and meets safety standards.
  • Final Touches: We will apply the finishing touches, such as polishing chrome, adjusting body gaps, and adding authentic badges and emblems.
  • Quality Control and Inspection: Your restored classic car undergoes a comprehensive quality control inspection to ensure it meets the restoration goals and is ready for delivery or collection.

Throughout the restoration process, Hillwood Autos will keep you informed, provide updates, and seek input on specific details. The result is a meticulously restored classic car that evokes its original glory and captures the essence of automotive history for the enjoyment of generations to come.
