Classic Car Restoration
Whether you need one panel or one fender, or you want to do a full frame-off restoration, Accelerate Auto Repair has the tools, equipment, knowledge and experience to restore your classic or antique vehicle to showroom specs.
When you take your classic or antique vehicle to car shows, just one little flaw can cost you that Best of Show trophy. Our restoration techs can go through your vehicle with a fine-tooth comb to find all the dips, bumps, scratches and other body imperfections and smooth them out.
The restoration mechanic will go through the interior to replace seats, headliners, carpets and other flooring, controls and switches, gauges and anything else that needs to be repaired or replaced. When we are done with your vehicle, you’ll be proud to show it off at any car show or parade.
