Restoring old cars is a very nice and interesting hobby. It’s a great feeling being able to fix something so old and turn it into something that’s very nice. But before getting into this kind of pastime you would need to take some things into consideration. Here are five steps that we should look into before starting a project.


When you are about to restore or fix cars you would need a big space or garage for the project. Cars, tools and accessories like stone chip protection film needs to be placed in a garage or shed where everything can be well organized. If you have limited space at home then you need to look for one or put the project on hold.

 2.) Tools

Before starting the project, you need to have a good set of tools that you will be using for your renovation projects. Make sure to buy mechanical tools that can last for a very long long time. Durable and high quality tools are always worth the price so do not think twice about investing.

 3.) Money

Car renovation is not a cheap hobby. You need to have the budget to buy headlight protection film, car paint, accessories and other essentials to complete the restoration. Remember that prices of spare parts vary on the make and model of the car that you will be restoring. The older the model, the more difficult it is to find the spare parts that you will be needing.

 3.) Project Car

Of course before getting started with your renovation project you need to choose a car to work on. Look for people who are willing to sell you their old cars and transform it into something that you can sell or use. Choose a car that is still in good condition so it’s going to be easier to look for spare parts and complete the project. If you are just starting out, you can begin the project with one car and see if it works for you. It’s better to get the feel of it before investing more money.


Each car restoration project needs a timeline or actual date of completion. This is especially applicable when you are planning to make a profit out of it. Keeping a car too long in the garage or shed may decrease its value. It’s better to start working on the restoration process right away so you would be able to find a potential buyer and sell your work as soon a possible.
