Default Re: List of Vintage / Classic Car Restorers in India

One of the things i have noticed in restoration is that there are not too many competent suppliers/specialists outside of the main restorer to go to while restoration is on. As a single restorer cannot do everything on his/her own this is a critical thing.
Take for example Electroplating/Chrome plating. Here in Bangalore Vijaylakshmi was supposed to be the best but i had a not so good experience with them last time. The actual way of doing a Chrome job was not done and corners were cut to make a quick buck.
Another case is of Media/Shot blasting. Many of our restored vehicles do not match the ones restored overseas in terms of paint quality and surface finish because very few people Media blast the car..Such facilities seldom exist with individual restorers here.
Understandably the overall industry is very small and has so many limitations added to which is our crazy rules and regulations...
By the way I got to know of a person who does extremely high quality powder coating recently. He is going to set up a state of the art Chrome plating shop soon. I have not asked him his permission to put his details here. If anyone wants i can ask him and let you know. PM me..

Well, this important and useful thread has come up, it was languishing at the bottom.

The Mumbai VCCCI rally had 2 cars which were done up by Sanghi Motors, a Pontiac and a Ford T. These turned out very neat.

The Pontiac GTO looked smashing and apart from the white walls, the Model T was so
sweet! Thanks for posting.

Has anyone started a thread on The VCCCI Rally?
