    Antique Car in Boulder

    Cars are so much more than an efficient means of transportation. They allow our days to flow smoother, becoming an essential element of our lives. Therefore, every car owner knows how important is to take good care of it, in order to keep it running for a long time.

    Classic Car Restoration mistakes

    Working on a car is already a complex task, even a simple project as an oil change requires a certain level of skill. It is true that there is pride in DIY projects. However, at Boulder car owners tend to overestimate their mechanical skills, and when it comes to a antique car project you need real skills and knowledge. 

    Restoring a classic car is a dream for many Boulder citizens. There is passion in bringing a part of history back to life, but it is important to acknowledge your limitations, otherwise your antique car could become an expensive frustration. After working for decades in classic car restorations and providing the best antique car services to Boulder citizens, at Allegiance Automotive, we have gained much experience and knowledge in antique car projects and today we would like to share some handy antique car tips. 

    Proper antique car planning

    Actually, this is a rule of thumb for any antique car project. No matter if it is a muscle car upgrade, an antique or classic car restoration project, it is vital to establish a methodical plan and to get prepared before your antique car quest. 

    Set your budget. It is important to keep in mind that a antique car project could bring unexpected surprises in the process, and it is almost for sure it will cost more than expected. Do your homework before starting your antique car project. Do extensive research on parts, manuals, literature and anything useful on your antique car project. 

    Detailed documentation

    Rebuilding an engine is extremely complex. Therefore, it is important to have detailed documents of the disassembly process, taking pictures of the parts. Try to stick with the originals and look for the same replacements. This could also help avoiding purchasing the same parts twice.

    Avoid trashing parts too early. Sometimes, finding original parts for classic cars is quite hard and expensive, and a professional antique car expert could actually restore the original part. Never discard or sell any part until the job is done. Professional antique car experts can also have a better idea where to score complex parts.
