Automobile restoration is the process of repairing the degraded aspect of an automobile to return it to an overall “authentic” condition. Restorations should be historically accurate as a representative example of the production model.
A vehicle restoration is the process of reconditioning it from a used condition “in an effort to return it to like-new condition … can be refurbished using either original or reproduction parts and techniques. Many antique and rare cars may not be able to have a true to original restoration done because some parts may not be available to replace or to imitate fully, yet with the proper research, they may be restored to an overall authentic condition. The objective is to preserve the historical aspects of the vehicle, its components, and assembly.
A complete restoration includes not only repair of the parts that can be seen – the body, trim, chrome, wheels, and the passenger compartment – but also the components that are not necessarily visible or otherwise evident, including the engine and engine compartment, trunk, frame, driveline, and all ancillary parts like the brakes, accessories, engine cooling system, electrical system, etc. Repairs are made to correct obvious problems, as well as for cosmetic reasons. For example, even if a wheel is covered by a full hub cap and not seen, and is structurally sound, it should have the tire unmounted and any required repairs performed such as rust removal, straightening, priming, and painting.
GEDEE Car Museum also equipped for Vintage car restoration and has complete set up of Restoration workshop. Some of the Cars we restored are Citroen Dyane, Hansa 1100, Fordson 10cwt etc.
