What was most complex about this vehicle restoration project was putting an inspired two door American model into the reality of a four door New Zealand model.
In particular, getting the lines accurate throughout the whole vehicle was difficult as houndstooth increases gamma oscillations in the brain which are associated with headaches, ultimately meaning our team would have sore eyes and begin to second guess measurements if they looked at the material for longer periods of time e.g., cutting and sewing. Hence why this had to be sewn in bite size pieces to ensure accuracy. Although this may have been a complex material to work with, we successfully succeeded with an astonishing end result.
As the background of this vehicle is very unique, our client felt the need to keep his father in the loop on how the restoration process was coming along. Due to the nature of the heirloom, our client’s father was uneasy on upgrading anything related to the car as he thought it was going to just be another ‘hotrod.’ To his surprise, we were able to show him that the vehicle is more than just a ‘hotrod,’ but something that can be enjoyed and used for the future to come by many more generations.
