About the Car Restoration and Supplies heading in the Yellow Pages®
Car restoration is the repairing of a car in order to return it to the same, or better, condition than that in which it left the factory. This may include mechanical repairs, as well as restoration of body panels, paint and interior to their original condition. It can also include the addition of fittings and accessories superior to the originals.
There are many licensed businesses which specialise in car restoration, offering a ‘one stop shop’ with services that include supply of original parts and paint colour, engine and body repair, upholstery and carpet matching, rewiring, etc. They provide whatever materials and labour are needed to restore a car to its factory-fresh condition.
Many owners of classic cars prefer to restore their vehicles themselves. Although this can be time-consuming, it is often done as a labour of love, with a car taking many months, or even years, to restore. These enthusiasts are well served by classic car restoration suppliers, who offer hard-to- find original parts, body shop paint supplies, carpet and upholstery materials and everything needed by do-it-yourself restorers. Many of these suppliers have a website detailing availability and cost of parts and supplies, making shopping easier. Search with Yellow Pages® to find a number of car restoration and supplies in all states in Australia.
