Overall, while it's understandable that you may want to provide their own parts for a restoration project, it's often more efficient and cost-effective to allow us to source and provide the parts that are needed. Restorations are complex projects that require expertise and attention to detail, and trusting us to provide the necessary parts is often the best way to ensure a high-quality restoration that meets your expectations.
Time and labor costs: Installing parts that we did not source ourselves can take additional time and labor, which can result in additional costs for you.
Liability: If there are issues with the parts you bring, we may be hesitant to install them due to liability concerns. We may prefer to use our own parts to ensure quality and minimize liability risks.
Compatibility: Certain parts may not be compatible with the specific make and model of the car being restored, which can cause delays and additional costs.
Warranty: If the parts you bring fail or don't work properly, it may be difficult to obtain a warranty or guarantee, as we did not source the parts ourselves.
Quality: The quality of the parts you bring may not be up to our shop's standards. Restoring a car requires precision and attention to detail, and using subpar parts can compromise the overall quality of the restoration.
