Frame-up restoration: These restorations are from the frame up. We rework the body, interior, motor, trunk, and paint replacing only those parts on the frame that need it.
Frame-off restoration: Here, the entire car is replaced or rebuilt. The body is removed from the car. The Frame is inspected, and all parts are replaced, repainted, or powder coated. All parts on these cars will look new. Due to the cost associated with frame-off restoration, these cars often require extensive care and cleaning and are rarely driven.
Resto-mod: This is a classic car that has been restored and modified using modern parts and technology. Aesthetically, the vehicle will look the same from the outside.
Rat rod: “A rat rod is a custom car with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from cheap or cast-off parts.”
In addition, the parts on a rat rod might include non-automotive items which have been repurposed. For example, an old saw could be a sun visor, wrenches could be used as door handles, and a rifle could be used as a gear shifter. A rat rod will show a good deal of personality based on the imagination of the builder.
(The rat rod style shouldn’t be confused with the traditional hot rod style. Traditional hot rods are period-correct or accurate re-creations of hot rods from the 1940s, 50s, and early 60s.)
