Information about our restorations
Restoring vintage prams
In principle, we prefer to restore the prams to as original a condition as possible. If a pram is nice in terms of model, but we cannot or do not want to return it to its original state, we would also like to enhance it (see the gothic car 08-007). Doll prams for little doll mothers who are going to play with them again, we pimp more often and possibly we can personalize them with a name or initials.
With wooden bodies, keep in mind that it can contain woodworm!
If there are indications of active woodworm, we will not accept the assignment.
Below we will show some photo series of restorations that we have carried out. We restore both our own prams and others' prams. For a quotation, send a few photos, including a photo of the entire pram. We have metal parts and bodies powder coated or chromed if necessary. The wooden bodies are painted. It is of course also possible that you yourself perform certain (paint) activities. For covering the hoods and the rain cover, we use the material from yacht building as much as possible, especially since this is light resistant (UV-resistant), so it hardly or never discolours.
Powder coating is an electrostatic dyeing process in which, with compressed air, negatively charged powder is sprayed onto a positively charged workpiece. As a result, the powder sticks temporarily to the workpiece, after which it is melted or baked in an oven. This is generally more durable than painting.
Chrome plating is a meticulous job that must be done by a specialist for the best results. Partly because of the chemicals, the environmental requirements are so high that only companies can implement them. We must therefore outsource this work and therefore we must take into account waiting / delivery times of at least 2 months.
We do this in addition to our normal job and our time is therefore limited. So don't wait until the last moment.
We do our best to carry out assignments as quickly as possible but, just like chrome plating, we still have a considerable waiting time. Ask about this before you give an assignment.
