3 Tips to Get You Started on Your Auto Restoration Project

If you have never restored a car, you might feel overwhelmed and intimidated at the idea of taking on such a huge project. However, sometimes all you need is a list of simple tasks to focus on to make starting the restoration seem more manageable. The professionals at Orthodox Auto Company have helped countless customers through the auto restoration process. We recommend jump-starting your project with these 3 tips.

1. Create a Workspace

You will want to keep your tools and supplies in a single organized space so that you can work efficiently. A garage or covered carport usually works best for auto restorations. Make sure you have all of the necessary items and organize them so that you don't have to spend time each day finding and transporting your supplies.

2. Do Your Research

Restoring a car is a complicated process, so you need to know what you are doing before you get started. Do plenty of research on what you are doing, and on what tools and supplies you need to complete it. You should also have your end goal in mind. If you get discouraged midway through your restoration, it will help to be able to picture your goal to keep you going.

3. Go Salvage

A restoration project isn't exactly cheap. However, you can reduce costs by getting auto parts online or at a salvage yard. In fact, your best way to save money is to take advantage of our pick and pull program here at Orthodox Auto of Philadelphia, where you can search our lot and pull out just the parts you need.
