Hi Everyone!

We are a county museum in Naples, Florida with a 1947 Bud Tavern Club Car. We are looking to complete a restoration of mainly the interior including having a working bar area (plumbing, refrigeration, electrical, etc). We are hoping to find a restoration company or an individual that has prior experience with these specific cars or ones of a similar nature.

Does anyone in this forum restore trains or know of anyone in Florida that can travel and perform the work? The train is stationary and cannot move; all work must be performed on site.

Thank you!
