With restoration projects, there are five important systems of the car that should be considered before having any paint and body work done:
1. Disc Brakes
One of the first modern upgrades you should consider is adding a new disc brake system. If your vehicle has outdated drum brakes all the way around, consider adding disc brakes to the front wheels. You’ll be adding modern stopping power to your ride and possibly increasing its value should you decide to sell at a future date.
When you invest in more modern technology, you’ll get modern stopping power that’s more effective than the original parts.
There are about as many ways to upgrade your suspension as there are classic car styles and customizations, but no matter what kind of upgrade you choose, it’s likely to be better than stock.
3. Power Steering
Using too much muscle when steering your muscle or classic car? If power steering isn’t equipped on your vehicle, upgrading to a new rack-and-pinion power steering system can be a great investment.
4. Air Conditioning
Nothing adds more comfort to your ride than the cool breeze of an upgraded AC system.
5. Electrical Wiring
Restoring your vintage automobile includes careful inspection of the vehicle's wiring and electrical components. Over time, the wiring can become dried, frayed and result in a fire hazard. Restoring your vehicle's wiring system will provide a safe and trouble-free performance.
