Understanding Vehicle Restoration

Vehicle restoration is the process of reviving and preserving classic cars, diligently preserving their historical significance and beauty. The 1932 Ford Sedan 'Lakester' holds a special place in automotive history, known for its timeless design and high-performance capabilities.

Restorations often require meticulous attention to detail, sourcing original parts, and skilled craftsmanship to recreate the car's original glory. At BK Autosports, we combine our expertise with a passion for preserving automotive history, ensuring every restoration project is a masterpiece.

The Art of Roof Chopping

Chopping the roof of a classic car is an art form that requires immense skill and precision. This modification, popular among custom car enthusiasts, involves lowering the car's roofline, giving it a sleek and aggressive appearance. The 1932 Ford Sedan 'Lakester' lends itself perfectly to this modification, as its unique design elements seamlessly integrate with the chopped roof aesthetic.

Roof chopping involves expertly removing a section of the car's roof, reducing its height while maintaining structural integrity. This process demands careful planning, as cutting too much can compromise safety, while cutting too little may not achieve the desired visual impact. Our experienced technicians have honed their craft over years of practice, ensuring your 'Lakester' receives the perfect roof chop.
