F. A. Q. 's
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the payment process work?
Logue Motorsports Garage requires a deposit at drop off (or to hold your place on the schedule). We e-bill bi-weekly thereafter. Payments can be made online through PayPal, in person, or by mail, whichever is most convenient for you.
How much will it cost?
Our shop rate is $85 per hour, plus the cost of materials, supplies, and parts (if needed); with that said, the total cost varies greatly depending on the magnitude of the restoration and the condition of the vehicle at drop off (i.e. rust repair, custom fabrication required, etc.). We are very diligent in staying in constant communication with our customers throughout the entire build to discuss arising problems and recommended solutions, etc. There is no way to bid a job accurately before getting into it.
When it comes to custom paint work and restorations, each build is unique and done on a case by case bases. Leon will be happy to discuss the possible procedures that your vehicle may require and the approximate costs associated with them to complete your dream restoration.
Can you just paint my vehicle for me?
No. However, Logue Motorsports Garage will gladly do the complete restoration for you. We take pride in offering not only quality custom paint jobs, but full quality dream restorations. Let Logue Motorsports Garage make your dream come true!
Can you give me a quote?
Not Really. Until we begin work on the car and determine what is under all the layers, etc., we have no idea! There is great variability when dealing with old cars, and that requires a complete understanding of all the required work, and therefore we cannot commit to an estimate beforehand.
Will you come check out my vehicle before I bring it in?
This is on a case by case basis. Leon typically spends time discussing your project over the phone with you and reviewing emailed photos prior to bringing the vehicle to our shop.
Another shop has my car in primer, can you paint it?
No. We cannot paint a vehicle over body work we did not do. We will be happy to restore your vehicle, but all restorations require taking the vehicle back down to bare metal first.
What about rust?
Unfortunately, rust repair is difficult to estimate; paints and fillers hide a lot of corrosion that we won’t be able to see until vehicle is stripped. Rust is insidious in nature and tends to attack panels from the inside out so by the time you see the damage, there is considerably more you don’t see. This is why prep is key to any quality paint job.
What parts will need to be purchased?
This is mostly up to the customer and the magnitude of the build. Leon will happy to discuss this with you in the beginning stages and he will gladly offer suggestions and work with you to come up with the best plan for your vehicle.
How many hours are required for a restoration?
It is difficult to predict the number of hours required for a restoration. Once we have evaluated and created the best plan to restore your vehicle, we can get an estimate of the hours needed for the project. However, even after a thorough initial examination, the extent of rust, damage, and state of the parts under paint, fillers, and panels cannot be determined.
Can we restore the vehicle in stages?
Yes. Whether you wish to complete some of the phases or you want to stagger the restoration for budgetary reasons, we can accommodate your requirements and work with you.
Will I get reports on my vehicle’s progress?
Absolutely! We diligently provide updates with the invoice bi-weekly, usually accompanied with photos as well! Leon makes it a priority to send updates by phone, text, or email often.
