BMW Restoration Services
Call The Werk Shop to bring your BMW dreams to life!
The Werk Shop has been restoring BMW's for over 20 years and is recognized as one
of the top three BMW restoration shops in the world. Pre- or post-war BMW's, we
have been involved in all models.
As you will see when you
visit our Registry of Restorations, our customers come to us with a love
for these cars. Every BMW has a story as to why the owner wanted to restore his
or her car. Some want 100-point show cars for Concours events and collections. Others
drove the car in their college days and want to re-live the experience. Still others
bought their car new or used 20, 25 or even 30 years ago and want to re-make it
so they can drive it for another long period of time. Most all customers want to
keep these finished projects for the rest of their life.
The Werk Shop performs a Complete Restoration, we take the car apart down to the
last nut and bolt. No two pieces stay together. The "shell" is then sent to the
paint shop while we work on all of the mechanical components. Each piece of the
car is evaluated for serviceability. If in good shape - or in need of a slight repair
- we remove it's existing finish, make the necessary repairs and re-finish each
and every part to original factory specs. Where replacement of the part is necessary,
we hunt our worldwide contacts for the correct replacement. We disassemble the engine
and other major components and rebuild them to high quality specifications using
original factory parts, then detail each part to better than new factory look. We
add a contrasting look to our reassembly by using all new, cad plated nuts and bolts,
and we even cad plate many of your existing metal parts. Our paint finishes are
very high gloss as we use color and clear in a two-stage process. Our interiors
can be factory stock or custom designed to your likes. The process takes nine to
12 months and when completed, your car will be a stand out having that "wow" look
that makes a BMW car a BMW car.
we perform a Partial Restoration, we take a Preservation approach to our task. We
focus only on all the areas that need repair or replacement, keeping every part
that is still serviceable. The project usually includes metal work to eliminate
rusted areas, new paint and some interior work. We may rebuild the engine in house
or save expense by using a factory re-man (crate) motor.
Whether we are doing a Complete Restoration or a Partial, we visit with our customer
to understand his expectations. We create a "build sheet" from those conversations
so that the end result is exactly what you are looking for. We request an up-front deposit and furnish detailed billing at
incremental periods, along with a CD of digital photos documenting the progress
of your car.
The current collector car market is just beginning to awaken as to the value of
older restored BMW's, and we have seen record prices for the few exceptional cars
that have traded hands this past year. The monies you invest in this project today
will all come back to you in the future. Remember, we are only keepers of these
cars. Some day you will pass on your fun/collector car and that new owner will keep
it for the next enthusiast. What great fun this hobby is!
