For many car enthusiasts, there is no greater achievement than getting an old vintage car back up and running again. Yes, there is a lot of enjoyment in testing a brand-new Ferrari out, but nothing compares to the feeling of lovingly restoring a vintage car that has seen better days, back to its former glory.
If you have come across such a car and want to restore it to it’s best, you will probably know that it can be a time consuming, not to mention expensive hobby to pursue. But it is also incredibly satisfying, and you also have the opportunity to really make the car yours and customise it to your own specifications. It may end up better than it ever has been!
If a car has been unused for a long time and is a bit worse for wear, the engine is the first thing to check – without that the car is going nowhere! There are many processes such as thermal plasma spray which are a great way to restore old machinery parts and can be used for getting a range of vehicles back up and running again.
Once you have got the engine up and running again, you will need to give the other internal parts a bit of TLC to keep the engine running smoothly. From priming your oil system to replacing the fuel filter, these are all essential tasks to ensure that the car is healthy from the inside out!
