If you look at the 1939 Chrysler Royal pictured above, believe it or not, when that car came to us the paint and exterior trim was dull and hazy due to oxidation. It looks as good as is pictured without any painting or plating. We gave the paint and trim a very thorough buffing and polishing, which removed the oxidation, swirls, and minor scratches that existed previously, and left it with the brilliant shine that is clearly visible.
This might surprise a lot of people, but many of the vehicles we work on are just "drivers", or as we like to call them, preservations. They're vehicles where the owners just want to enjoy them as-is, and often to keep them as original as possible.
Please note though that while we do service "drivers", we do NOT perform "driver-quality" work. We treat every vehicle the same, and always put forth our best efforts to provide exceptional service and quality.
