Using only experienced artisans and top quality products, restorations can be guaranteed to be secure investments. Our methods of reconditioning the metal and matching the correct colours, in a matter of fact, meet the very strict criteria of ASI (Automotoclub Storico Italiano) certification. AutoBella offers a range of restoration methods and processes in order to meet your budget goals and/or process of restoration. These methods include conservative, total and custom rebuild.
Conservative aims to keep the vehicle and its components as original as possible, in order to guarantee a solid time proof investment. Partial MIG and lead welding are the preferred options for this type of restoration, as only partial metal work is replaced.
A total restoration is applied to vehicles which need most of its metalwork components to be replaced and can guarantee an extremely long lasting longevity due to modern treatments and materials.
A custom rebuild is an approach to classic restoration for customers which are looking to maximise their experience with classic cars: transforming the car to a more aggressive version of their time (Alfa Romeo GTA conversion for example), or even transforming a classic hatchback into a convertible to enjoy the upcoming summer.
