Most of them cite an emotional attachment to their car. They have a sentimental value attached like their first car, the car bought with their first salary or an antique car handed down from a loved one or a family member.
When one decides to overhaul a car, the first point to be borne in mind is to take it to an expert. One should not attempt to overhaul the car if one does not have the expertise .They will end up ruining the car rather than improve the looks and performance.
Opt for genuine parts
There are spurious dealers who deal with parts that are stolen and brought from unlicensed vendors. They need to be avoided even though they are cheaper. One should approach a genuine dealer who can help with the genuine parts.
Opt for good upholstery
One should opt for good automotive upholstery foam in the car. Having good upholstery not only changes the looks of the car dramatically but also offers superior comfort. There are good websites where one can place an order for the foam. The choice of design can be one’s own. The overhaul foaming can also be done with automotive upholstery foam and is not restricted to the seating alone. The doors, the ceiling, the dashboard can also be protected using a superior foam.
Aim for a colorful finish
With the engine , parts and upholstery taken care ,the next option is to have the car painted .Black and Red are favorite choices ,but one can be adventurous and choose a color like cobalt blue , bright yellow or some prints on the car. Calligraphy or slogan, which describes one’s signature style, can also be imprinted.
Take the car for a spin
Once the overhaul is completed, the car should be taken for a ride to check whether the engine is functioning to its full capacity and the car is running smoothly. The gas consumption, meters, brakes should all be tested and if there is any issue should be informed immediately and rectified.
The final touch
Once the car is back from the overhauling expert, care should be taken to maintain the car in mint condition so that the overhauling efforts stays for a long time to come .The car owner can take pride in his car and bask in the admiration of friends ,family and passersby. He is now the proud owner of a new car although it is a recycled one and share some tips to his similar minded friends. Brushing off regular enquiries to sell the car from car collectors will be an everyday feature.
