Restoration Thoughts

Written by Darren Rayborn

On March 1, 2018

If you were to consider a restoration on your car, what would you do? How far would you go? Would you consider a full, frame-off rotisserie? How about an engine swap or upgrade? Are you one who would customize your ride so that Boyd Coddington would have been proud or keep it fully stock as something Henry Ford might cherish?

How far would you go and what would you do if this was a goal of yours? Just some body work and paint? Perhaps change out the interior? Have you considered colors, both outside and inside? Are a new set of tires on your agenda?

So many questions, but whether you are ready or not to take the plunge, it is kind of fun to whittle out a list of things to do. Just a bunch of what ifs? A bucket list?

For myself, I still have yet to find my dream car or project car. So, my list would have a car at the top of it!

Share what thoughts you have here or what projects you have worked on.

Let’s have some fun!
