It is impossible to give an exact cost. No two cars are the same. There are many variables to be taken into consideration. Estimates are often inaccurate due to the nature of the restoration process in which “hidden surprises” are discovered. Due to this, Innovative Restorations Inc. will do our very best to provide you with an initial estimate before the build is started.
An additional assessment will be given after the vehicle has been completely disassembled and body has been stripped down to its bare substrate. However this can only be a “ballpark figure” and not a guarantee of cost or labor.
All pricing is determined by the time, material, and parts needed for completion. Throughout the build there will be regular communication, to provide updates and to get approval to move forward on any unexpected repairs.
There are many determining factors: parts availability, quality of replacement parts available, type of build, full frame car vs. unibody, original restoration vs. restomod, etc.
Because of all of these variables, the process is unique to every project and therefore the amount of time before completion will be different as well.
Yes customers can provide there own parts, as long as it does not impede progress being made on the build, Also be aware that we are not responsible for the quality of the parts, or able to absorb the cost of labor in the event that there is a part failure.
Innovative Restorations has carefully chosen vendors that supply quality parts and services that we can stand behind.
We require a $1,000 deposit to hold a place in the schedule. This will be applied toward the first bill and is non-refundable if the appointment is canceled.

For projects lasting longer than two weeks, we require all parts, materials and sublet work to be paid for at the time of vehicle drop off.
