If you are looking to restore a classic car for the first time, know that it is a labor of love. Fully restoring a classic car can take around 1,000 hours at least.
One of the major challenges of restoration is finding replacement parts. There are so many pieces that you might need to replace, it can get overwhelming quickly. You may need to completely take the car apart and rebuild it. Especially if this is your first time working on a restoration project, you might want to start with something a bit more manageable.
