Hagerty restoration tip of the month presented by SoCal!
How To: Start your new paint job A great paint job starts with a clean surface. All of our restorations begin with stripping the rust and old materials off the vehicle. But be warned: Never media blast (including sand!) any panels you would wax, on the inside or outside. The process of media blasting heats the panels and can often cause warping as a result of the metal shrinking. For best results, and to avoid damage, hand strip large panels and leave media blasting for heavy gauge areas such as the jambs and floors. To remove rust from thinner panels, we use an acid-based metal cleaner by PPG Products. Ensuring that all panels are clean and free of rust is the best way to promote adhesion for a long-lasting paint job.
