RESTORATION

P1012434.JPG

Original Restorations specializes in German automobile restoration. Although the quality and beauty of our work is often described as art, returning vintage automobiles back to their original state is our main focus.

 

We work with you to help facilitate the restoration process, taking the time to understand your needs.


We are focused on metal straightening because we feel this is the most important step in a ground-up restoration. Getting the metal back to its original shape is critical for body panel alignment and longevity of the restoration. All paintwork is performed in a new state of the art semi-down draft booth. After the drying process it is polished to perfection.

SMALLER SPECIALTY REPAIRS

We understand that many quality classic automobiles do not require ground-up restoration. We love to tackle the difficult task of repairing the small trouble spots on your vehicle. We aspire to a no-trace work philosophy while doing this type of repair. We know we have been successful when you, the owner, cannot tell that Original Restorations has been there.
