A full restoration requires
a break down into several work phases, and the costs involved will vary
depending on the type of vehicle being restored, its condition before restoration,
and the amount of work to be done:
To begin with, the pedal car
is completely disassembled and the chassis rebuilt by reconditioning the
existing parts and or replacing parts where necessary. The choice of parts
depends on whether the pedal car is being restored to original, or customized.
The running gear and its components are sand blasted to remove all of the
old paint and then either painted or powder coated in a weather resistant
finish. All hardware is stainless steel which makes the hardware
look brand new.
- Metal, body, and paint work
- Replacement of any parts &
- Chrome/stainless rechroming-repolishing
Any apparent rust is repaired,
and the paint is removed through a combination of sand blasting.
The body is primed and block
sanded at least three times before paint. All of it's components are painted
separately, and they are repainted as one unit to insure uniformity
of color. We use PPG paint products which we feel are the best offered
an have been working with for over 33 years.
All work is coordinated so
the restored of the running gear is ready for the body as soon as the body
Once the body is painted
including clear coated work is done, the paint is color sanded and hand
rubbed to a beautiful finish. The trim is put back on, and the interior
Time frame is about eight
months to complete a project, depending on its model. Payment is required
to start the work, and billing is done monthly. Pictures of the work are
