Especially during these difficult times, we are grateful for customers like the owner of this classic car who entrusted it to us to remove paint and rust without warping or other damage so that it can be repainted.
This is the second car we have stripped for this customer. We think it turned out really well, and we’re looking forward to seeing it when it’s completely restored.
Here’s some before and after shots of a recent job we did for Jack Maxton Chevrolet’s body shop. We used baking soda to remove paint, dirt and rust from this Camaro, leaving an extremely smooth surface that is a great base for a high quality paint job.
We have soda blasted the frames of some unusual vehicles recently for owners who were preparing them for rebuilding and restoration. Heavenbound Aviation brought us the frame of a type certified 1946 Piper J3 Cub for removal of paint and rust. Once the bare metal is exposed, the frame can be inspected and repainted, extending the life of the aircraft.
Below is the chassis of a Quarter Midget race car, before and after soda blasting. It is being restored by GT Body Shop in Pataskala, Ohio. It took our techs about 2 hours to remove the black powder coating finish that you see in the photo on the left. When we were finished (right), the chassis was ready to be painted and to have the body panels replaced.
