When a classic car requires restoration with services provided for body and paint, the vehicle must be brought to its bare metal at first. Such a procedure allows you to view any damage or even rust. The car’s exterior surface gets a complete metal striping and sandblasting. We use New Jersey silica along with a final dusting of DuPont star blast the star blast removes any containment’s from the metal therefore we are able to instantly apply a metal etching epoxy primer after the sandblasting procedure is completed. On this 1940 Ford frame off restoration we removed the body and frame for blasting and metal work. The car gets finished with a high quality urethane base coat and high solids clear coat by PPG refinishes. Once the body and paint refinishing is completed then all brand new wiring, chrome and rubbers are installed with fresh glass .
Teddy was a veteran repair shop owner in Hartford Ct. and remarks: “No one restores a car as efficient as John Russo”. He became engaged seeing Russo at work and kept admiring his skills and expertise in the task. He completely loved the restoration of his 1940 classic Ford and congratulated our specialists worked at Palm Beach Customs. The front and rear bumpers to the Ford required re-chroming with a three stage process copper, nickle then chrome. The interior was a Lebanon and Bonny kit carpeting with the re-upholstered seats door panels and headliner. The vehicle’s authenticity is maintained by using the original factory colors as well as the materials designed for the specific model.
The classic Ford from 1940 was not the only auto that was restored at Palm Beach Customs, but there are series of such amazing works that we have done in the past. Our store at Fort Myers, Florida is popular among the local people and also several places far off with the incredible response that we’ve acquired on our services.
