Did you know that the welding techniques used on modern body panels will not work on older vehicles because of the thicker steels used in the past?
That’s just one of the many tips car/light truck enthusiasts will learn in the British Columbian Institute of Technology’s (BCIT) new part-time Vehicle Restoration program.
Developed in response to the growing popularity of collector car restoration, this exciting new program consists of five 30-hour part-time courses covering:
- Sheet metal fabrication and repair
- Oxyacetylene and gas metal arc welding
- Plastic filler application
- Surface preparation
- Refinishing techniques.
In addition to learning from BCIT’s instructors’ years of experience, students will be encouraged to share their own experiences with classmates in an inter-active setting.
Students will also have the opportunity to apply the skills and techniques learned in class to hands-on projects within BCIT’s collision repair facility located at the Burnaby Campus.
Skills covered within this unique program will be of special interest to professional, amateur classic car restorers, customizers, kit builders and specialty car builders.
