What's underneath that paint is often a perplexing question, but if you
want a beautiful, custom, show quality paint job, you'll need to strip
everything away to bare metal. How you get to that point can affect the outcome
of your final paint job.
Sanding is the time-honored tradition but it takes a long, long time to get
through everythingand the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. Chemical
paint removers are a sloppy mess, and you need to reapply and reapply and scrape
and scrape; and you'll still have to sand off some of the tougher materials.
Some companies will dip your entire body into tanks of chemicals to strip it.
[Followed by] baths in neutralizers and high-pressure washes designed to
eliminate the chemicals trapped in your car's sheet metal; but if the operator
isn't zealous, traces of chemical will be trapped in nooks and crannies and
later (sometimes years), it will eat away your beautiful paint job from the
inside (I speak from experience). Sandblasting is too forceful (85-100 psi) for
the relatively thin surfaces of an automobile. High pressures and
hard-silica-sand particles can stretch the sheet metal and even remove material..
Plastic Media Blasting (PMB) really is the perfect process for removing paint,
primer, Bondo, and other assorted items. There is not a more efficient,
economical, or safe way to remove the paint and body filler than (PMB). Low
blast pressures (20 to 40 psi) and soft plastic particles are safe for the most
delicate surfaces. You can use (PMB) on fiberglass, thin metals, trim, and more.
There is not another facility with the blasting capabilities that Texas Auto
Restoration (Texas Auto Restoration) has anywhere within a 1,000 mile radius,...
if at all. End of story.
Our process is modeled to the same military specifications (Navy/Marines:
IND-001-99; Air Force: ST01; Army: DPT) and uses some of the identical equipment
they use. The Texas Auto Restoration blast facility consists of two separate and
segregated blast rooms, one utilizing plastic media, and the other for use with
more aggressive medias such as DuPont Starblast used for rust eradication. We
have just completed various upgrades/revisions such as refrigeration air dryers,
vacuum systems, etc., which even increased our productivity and performance,
resulting in a finished product which is second to none.
When removing paint from the vehicle, the blasting process can be done to
whatever level/degree you desire. This can range from simply blasting the
exterior, leaving all components in place, and the end result being an exterior
substrate which is free of all paint and body filler, and ready to perform
necessary body work, prime/seal and finally paint. The other extreme being
complete and total removal of all components and removing the "shell", mounting
it on one of our five rotisseries and performing a complete and thorough
blasting of all surfaces (exterior, interior, undercarriage, engine compartment,
trunk compartment, etc.). At this point, all areas with any sign of rust
corrosion are best treated by blasting with a more aggressive media, such as
Dupont Starblast. Once these steps are completed, the body panels can be
replaced, the necessary body work performed, and finally the body can be
primed/sealed with a quality product, such as PPG DP 90 epoxy primer/sealer.
This is, without a doubt, the method/procedure which is most widely used and
accepted by all show quality restorers in the classic/antique auto restoration
We serve Houston, Dallas-Ft Worth, San Antonio, Austin and the rest of Texas, as
well as the surrounding states. Whether it's for street, show, the race track or
somewhere in between, Texas Auto Restoration's work is second to none.
