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 classics are often in poor condition. After a thorough inspection, we will be able to produce a restoration estimate. However with old original cars there are invariably issues which arise once the car is fully dismantled at which point clients are briefed on further works.
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.
