scheduling deposit is required. 15% of original estimate/quote ($500 minimum).
I start planning your restoration
job. I do research, locate parts, schedule any helpers that I may need, check on paint color, and if needed, arrange to have
your vehicle delivered to the shop. I will be ready for your Dream Car when it arrives for restoration, paint or touch-ups.

Once vehicle is delivered to shop (I can arrange
to have it picked up at owner's expense). An additional payment is required, 35% of original estimate/quote, to start
the restoration (remove as required chrome, windows, paint)
Stage 2 of Restoration, if I find that additional repairs or parts are required to complete restoration RIGHT, owner will
be emailed pictures or asked to come to shop to discuss findings. Additional payments for these repairs or parts will
be required prior to completing repairs or ordering parts.
If vehicle needs restoration of interior or mechanical
work I can do portions of what is required and I will work with whatever other source owner of vehicle chooses (seats, engine,
transmission will be sent out). I do not do any upholstery or mechanical rebuilding, but I can provide references
for these services.

All repairs to body have been completed
and needed parts have been received. Owner will be asked to inspect panel fit and body lines. An advancement payment

and buffing final clear coats.) Owner will be asked to inspect final paint appearance.
