Shot blasting is imperative in full vehicle restoration, it is the only way to ensure all rust is appropriately located and rectified. Once the vehicle is dismantled the body shell is removed from the chassis and the shell is attached to a rotisserie to allow 360 degree rotation and shot blasted back to bare metal. Similarly, the chassis and suspension components can also be blasted back in the same way if required.
A re‐sprayed body is the first thing people judge a restoration job by and it exemplifies the quality of the restoration.
