What is paintwork restoration?
The difference is largely the amount of time involved and the price. However, it might be worth it, especially on vintage cars with original paintwork (or mostly original paintwork). Respraying the car would mean it loses some of its charm. It might also be worth doing on expensive, desirable, luxury and sports cars which will one day be valuable classic cars.
There is a lot to be said for keeping the paintwork original, as this can make the car more valuable.
Typically, we would perform this services in conjunction with restoring other parts of the car, such as wheels and leather upholstery.
