Maximising in-house skilled work allows Tornado Automotive to effectively control both quality and costs. As clients tend to prefer buying original cars from America, typically ‘barn finds’ and old models found on sites like eBay, Craigslist and Hemmings, these old cars are often in poor condition and therefore require classic restoration. After a thorough inspection, we will be able to produce an estimate based on our extensive knowledge of American car restoration. However, with old original cars, there are invariably issues that arise once the car is fully dismantled. At which point, clients are briefed on further works and notified of the need for new or improved classic car parts.
Client communication is an important part of the restoration process. Mike is a mine of information on original specification and he knows where to source spare parts and body panels from American suppliers. However, if a body panel is unavailable, we will fabricate handmade sections to complete the total restoration of the body shell.
