When it comes to restoring a vintage vehicle, often in poor condition due to external elements or neglect, questions emerge – where to start, how to prioritise, how long it will take …? Those who commit to genuine restoration will begin by assessing the overall condition and commence the long process of stripping the vehicle apart. Although often expensive, this very satisfying process is also very rewarding, if not purely therapeutic.
The body shell can only be properly assessed once bare. Often rusty, the vehicle panels, including floors and sometimes roofs, are traditionally sand blasted, This process is rather quick, but often fraught with danger. The highly compressed sand is projected which, upon impact, generates significant amount of heat. In the hands of an inexperienced operator, this might lead to panel sheets’ warping. And if that occurs, there is no going back – the sheet panel/s must be replaced, signifying even greater expense.
