Level 3 Vehicle Restoration: Madman Car Care

Level 3 Vehicle Restoration Package

Detail Type:

Major/Minor Paint Correction – Vehicle Restoration

Description:

The restoration service for highly discerning customers looking vehicle disassembly, wheels off, full interior cleansing, paint transformation, and specialized vehicle protection. The customer interview process is intensive to understand full expectations and deliver “madness”. For new vehicles, this involves vehicle coatings on every surface of the vehicle with proper vehicle preparation (decontamination, paint correction). For older vehicles, the restoration process often starts with the multi step paint correction, interior renewal, and any miscellaneous surfaces we can address. The restoration process is limited to vehicle condition, how major or minor services performed, and of course what the customer desires (budget, expectations, ownership length)

Cost – From $850 and up, all dependent on client expectations & interview process. Budget, labor hours, condition, and end goal are all considered.
