“Restoration” has become a very loose term in the automotive industry over the last 10-15 years. Television shows, social media, and the internet have highlighted products or methods that down-play the reality of what a restoration really entails. As a result, those considering having their vehicle restored underestimate the time and the true cost of the restoration process as well as the long-term effects of the methods and materials used. While a restoration may be your short-term goal, our long term goal is the preservation of your vehicle.
Before going any further, we want to advise our readers that this cost calculator is for a full restoration – using our process. Many customers come into our shop looking for a “full restoration” only to find that their perception of a full restoration is one that is defined by a paint job and a new interior kit. To us, that is a partial restoration. If you are looking for a partial restoration, the form below does not apply. Please contact us instead at 772-334-2041. We will then be able to discuss the options available to you. If, however, you are serious about doing a full restoration, using our process, we urge you to call us prior to filling out the form below and let us walk you through the steps of this cost estimator. We hope to not only help you more accurately estimate the cost of your restoration project, but to help you better understand the processes and methods used. We can then work with you to set up a budget plan that will be the first step in bringing your project back to life.
At Kiddy’s Classics, we do not take deposits to begin work on a vehicle. Every week, our customers receive a detailed labor log, invoice, and photos documenting the progress made on their restoration project. As a result, our customers are in complete control of the restoration process and are aware of how every penny is spent from the beginning to the very end.
Our ultimate goal is to not only restore your vehicle to its original condition, but to build a lasting relationship based on trust, loyalty, and mutual respect.
Below is an estimate of what your project might cost. Be as honest as you can when answering the questions. Click each question for more information and a better understanding:
