DT Classic Restorations is AutoTreasures and TSVC working together to restore beautiful classic cars for our customers. Applying project management skills we will define a detailed plan for the restoration, showing the schedule of activities alongside expenditure and milestones. Using this restoration plan, timescales can be adjusted to change the rate of expenditure and incorporate third parties for specialist activities. The first challenge in any restoration is identifying what work is required, what is optional and defining what level the customer actually expects from the restoration – full nut and bolt restoration; part restoration; mechanical restoration/improvement.
Classic cars previously restored include Mercedes 380SL, VW Fastback, Sunbeam Alpine series 2, Volvo P1800S.
Please call 07703 029823 to discuss your specific requirements.
