Gateway 3 – Restoration Scope
How deeply do I want to restore my vehicle?
The third gateway involves choosing the scope, or depth, of the restoration. We specialise in ground-up restorations, but can also focus on a single or multiple systems such as just the upholstery,or you may have already dismantled the vehicle and just need us to perform rust repairs and paint the body.
At Finch, we utilise a system of nine major stages to describe and control the restoration processes. In the diagram above, the nine stages are shown in a Vee shape. On the lefthand side of the Vee the vehicle is progressively being disassembled into constituent systems, sub-systems and assemblies. In the righthand side of the Vee, the constituent systems, sub-systems and assemblies are progressively reassembled into the completed and tested vehicle.
