Photograph Your Classic Car Restoration: It’s a good idea to document each step of your car restoration with photos which can help increase its market value.
Restoring a car can take years, so you will find parts you don’t recall seeing before. A catalog of photos will remind you.
Use a digital camera so you can see right away if it’s a quality photo and retake if it isn’t. You can also use software to lighten, darken or enlarge the photos. Plus, you can email photos to suppliers when ordering parts.
Cover all aspects of the car and supplement with close-ups. Zoom in where pieces of trim come together and capture all the details.
