This is bugging me

This 1964 Beetle arrived at the shop in need of some help. The paint was in such poor shape that we had the car media-blasted to get back to bare metal to prevent problems in the future.

Media-blasting is used to remove paint, rust and crud from a car by expelling tiny plastic beads with high pressure air against a surface. As the beads impact the surface they chip away the paint without damaging the metal underneath.

After the car was media-blasted, we cleaned it up and rolled it into the booth for a coat of primer.
