What are common faults with classic cars?
The most common issue for classic vehicles is corrosion. This often shows itself as rust spiders under the paint, or bubbling around affected areas and can in many cases hint at a problem that is much larger than meets the eye. This bubbling is most commonly seen on the door edges, rear arches, the sills, around the front and rear windscreens and on areas which can hold moisture, such as beneath trim pieces that are attached to the bodywork. With some of these classic vehicles being an increasingly worthwhile investment it has become more crucial than ever to stay on top of this corrosion before it has a chance to take hold.
At AutoSport Customs we offer a fully detailed inspection for paint defects and corrosion, and with our professionally trained eyes we can identify areas which may be cause for concern.
We have the experience and knowledge among our team, as well as the resources within our car body repair workshop, to use the correct factory techniques to repair your vehicle. You can expect the full Classic car service when we restore your prized vehicle to perfect condition. We deliver exceptional results.
