How Much Will You Spend?
If you’re like most car enthusiasts, you probably enjoy spending time restoring and modifying your vehicle. Whether you’re trying to keep it as original as possible or turn it into a completely custom ride, restoration work can be a lot of fun. But how much is it going to cost? The 912 Porsche Restorations experts take a look at the average prices for common restoration services. We’ll also discuss some tips on how to keep costs down without sacrificing quality.
The first thing you need to consider when budgeting for a restoration is the scope of the project. Are you just looking to do a few cosmetic upgrades, or are you planning a complete ground-up rebuild? The more work that needs to be done, the more it’s going to cost. Of course, there are always ways to cut corners and save money, but we’ll get into that later.
One of the most important aspects of any restoration is the paint job. A good paint job can make even an ordinary car look amazing, but it’s also one of the most expensive parts of the process. Depending on the size of your vehicle and the extent of damage (if any), you can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $5000 for a professional paint job. If you’re planning to do the work yourself, you can cut costs by using a less expensive paint job, but it’s important to remember that this is one area where quality is worth paying for.
Another common restoration service is engine work. This can range from a simple tune-up to a complete engine rebuild, and the cost will depend largely on the extent of the work that needs to be done. You can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $5000 for engine work, depending on the severity of the problem and the type of vehicle you have.
