Brake Hose Manufacturing

A cracked or leaking brake hose can drastically reduce the effectiveness of your vehicle's brakes, ranging from 'mushy' brake pedals that require more force than usual to work or even a complete brake failure. Either of these symptoms make your vehicle unsafe to drive.

Smart Automotive Restorations can replace leaking or cracked brake hoses with tailor made replacement hosing, cut directly in our shop. Contact us if you'd like to know more.

Roadworthy Inspections

Before you sell your vehicle or re-register a vehicle with an expired registration, you'll need to have it certified as roadworthy by a licensed vehicle tester. 

Smart Automotive Restorations will give your vehicle a thorough inspection of key safety features and critical components, giving you the peace of mind of a road-legal vehicle. Contact us if you'd like to know more.
