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.
