Important Note About Restoration


 

Why are you doing this project?

 

Because we can better help you to achieve what you want if we know why you want it, we always start by asking the customer’s motivation:

• Investment - Immediate Flip

• Investment - Future Profit

• Sentimental - Special emotional attachment; hand down to future generations

• Cool - Always wanted one (just like this!)

 
 

Do you have a fixed budget?

 

Be truthful with your restorator and with yourself – about how much you are actually prepared to spend. Sometimes what one wants and what one can afford are two different things. However, we at RCR are dedicated to helping everyone have their dream classic car, and we can suggest ways to help you achieve your dream affordably!

 

Be prepared for the unexpected – many problems are not obvious in the beginning, and may add to the estimated cost of the project.

 
 

Do you have a required, specific time frame?

 

Be truthful about ANY specific deadlines that it is important or necessary to meet – if we cannot meet them, we want to tell you that right away and perhaps help you find a restorator than can meet your needs (providing they are realistic!).

 

Be truthful about ANY expectations you have, regardless of whether it is a hard-and-fast deadline. If you are really wanting or expecting your vehicle done in a certain amount of time, communicate that with us, so that we can let you know if we can realistically come close to that expectation. Otherwise, you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

Be prepared for the unexpected – many problems are not obvious in the beginning, and may add to the estimated length of the project.
