Media Blasting the Jeep Body
The Jeep body is transported from the POR-15 shop by flatbed to Classy Chassis Auto Restoration. Eric, from 1st Step Surface Prep eco friendly dustless blasting came onsite with their dustless media blasting system. Using a mixture of ground glass and water at high pressure the old paint and primer was easily removed with no damage to the metal surface.
Rolling out the Jeep body, fenders and hood to load on the flatbed.
