Here at the Depot we believe a restoration should be as factory correct as possible; where the finished product looks as if it were built by hand at the factory. That’s why a carefully planned and well executed restoration will look better than the factory original, because it is built by hand. For example, if the motor mounts were originally bare metal with a green or blue paint mark then we're going to finish them a natural metal color and carefully apply the green and blue paint mark.
If we’re going to compromise on “factory correctness”, then lets do it in the performance department but let's make it look stock. If you looked under the hood of some of our personal cars we’ve restored, you would never know that the stock appearing engine was packing over 500hp. No nitrous required! Now that’s modern day performance with the look of yesterday and that’s what the Depot is all about.
At the end of the day it really gets down to detail. How much care and attention do you want put into your dream car? Because this business was started out of our passion for these cars, it’s easy for us to treat each restoration project like our very own.
