I think anyone would agree that cars changed the world, they have changed our lives. Being enthusiasts we love cars and appreciate the time and effort a person puts into saving a car and bringing it back to life. Writer Larry Edsall recently posted an article, on the classiccars.com blog, about what he reads in the international press releases he receives each week. It seems our domestic manufacturers aren’t doing such a great job as stewards of our past, thank goodness we are a nation of car lovers. Here is the link the blog, enjoy. Larry Edsall blog

This T-top ’87 Buick Grand National came in for a face lift.  The vehicle had been the unfortunate victim of a key job.  Luckily the car was in such nice shape to begin with, a paint job is all that was in order for this classic 80’s muscle car.

87 Grand National quater panel87 grand national with key scratches

This paint job was about as simple as they come when it comes to paint.  The first step involved fixing the key scratches. Most of the small key scratches came out with just a heavy sanding.  The remaining scratches were repaired with just a skim coat of filler.  The Grand Nationals paint was in such nice shape it wasn’t even necessary to strip. 

We almost completely dismantled the body to avoid any paint lifting or peeling issues down the road.  We also repaired just a few dents and dings this thing received throughout its life. After a few good coats of primer it was ready to sand and paint.

Back to black was the plan.  Having all the little bumper pieces, mirrors, and fillers painted give the face lift it deserved. After the clear coat, and a run through the bake cycle, sanding and buffing was next on the list.  No paint job is complete without being slicked down with a good sanding and buffing.

We’ll put the Grand National back together except for the emblems.  After a final buff and polish we’ll stick these emblems back on and send it down the road.

Just for fun lets imagine you have a classic car that’s been sitting in a garage, in a field, or in a barn.  Its dirty, it’s dusty, and you’re pretty sure something’s been living in it.   You see it all the time and you think to yourself “I’m gonna fix that up someday”.  Year after year you keep telling yourself this, but your classic just sits and sits. You remember driving it not too long ago, but you start doing the math and  “That was 20 years ago!!” 

Well guess what, it’s never going  to come to life without a commitment to making it happen.  This is a common story.  Someone has every good intention of restoring their classic, but never takes that first step.  The first step is always the hardest.  Making that call to the restoration shop, or getting the estimate, or even just removing the boxes that are piled from hood to ceiling, is all it takes to get the ball rolling. Every restoration has to start somewhere and making that first step is just the beginning of making your memories come back to life.

1928 Ford Model A1928 Ford Model AA

Knowing who to call or where to go can be overwhelming in itself.  When undertaking your project you want to know that you’re given the right information.  A good relationship with a restoration shop is what will help you relax as you work through your project.  Open communication, honest answers, and accessibility will comfort you along the way.  The process and the memories of a restoration are just as important as the end result,  so developing this relationship is what will make every penny and minute worth it.

Presicion resized 6001969 Plymouth Roadrunner

I don’t want to say to call a tow truck and deliver your car to the shop right away, but when you have those thoughts of restoring that space taker in the garage, act on it!  The car isn’t getting any newer, parts aren’t getting any cheaper, and you’re not getting any younger.  So make the move, do your homework, and make it happen, because in just a short time the only thing you will be putting on your hood is a fresh coat of wax.
