The car was first sent away for media-blasting to remove the old paint to give us a good foundation for laying on the paint. Media-blasting is the process of removing paint, rust and crud by spraying tiny plastic beads against a surface with a high pressure stream of air. It is just like sand-blasting except the plastic beads don’t chew up the metal the way sand would.
The body of the car is in terrific shape. After the paint was removed we tackled the little bit of metal work this car needed.
