Before shot  blastingWhat a beauty.

The story of this lovely classic car is a bit of a warning to us all.
The previous so called restorers had covered the whole body in about 5 mil of filler, in some places up to 10 mil. So what does an aluminium body do-it flexes! So the gorgeous red paint job was useless.
Showing the depth of fillerLuckily it was passed onto a reputable restorer who was making good the damage done previously.
Ready for restorationAs the filler was so thick we could not use the soda to blast the vehicle-which we usually use on ally as it is a softer metal. So we used the harsher media we have-which we knew would do the job, used in on several Bentley wings and you know how expensive they are to replace! It did leave the surface peened slightly but undistorted and ready for restoration by the real deal.
