Would you like to see a beautifully restored mid 60s Fairlane in your driveway or garage? There is something about these classic cars which make you feel good and give you a sense of pride in ownership. Restoring one of these lovely cars is well worth the time and money but before you start checking out 1966 Ford Fairlane parts, here are some important things to consider.
Have you sat down and figured out a budget for your entire restoration project. Make sure to find a good source like Concours Parts & Accessories, for your 1966 Ford Fairlane parts. You also need to figure tools and equipment into your costs. You do not need all the money now, but you should know how much you need each month, so you do not have to delay your restoration project because you are short of funds.
Where do you plan to restore your car? If you have a garage, you can use it, but you are tying up this space for a long time. You may need to think about a carport or storage shed large enough to hold your restoration project. Your space should be big enough for equipment tools and 1966 Ford Fairlane parts. Extra space is very important if you need to replace fenders or doors.
Can you handle the entire project on your own? If not, you may want to enlist the help of friends, relatives, or professional services. It takes a lot of skill to restore upholstery and give cars a professional looking paint job. It costs more for professional services, but you get high-quality results.
Maybe you want the satisfaction of doing the entire project yourself. If so, you may need to invest in some mechanic, bodywork, or welding training. These skills are good to have when you undertake a restoration project.
