Vintage Ferrari in for blasting

Vintage Ferrari Blasting American Dry Stripping

We have lots of rare and classic car partners in the area, some we’ve worked with for 20+ years! Back in June, our friends at Miller Motorcars in Greenwich delivered a vintage Ferrari to the shop for blasting.

Ferrari has always preferred aluminum bodies over CFRP (carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic) technology. This is because aluminum is “better suited to higher production volumes.”

Aluminum in the blast booth is super finicky: you do not want to try blasting a soft metal on an expensive resto at home!

Depending on the alloy, we use bead blasting with careful attention to PSI and the angle of blast. Pur guys have years of experience removing paint and coatings, with our shop manager John always inspecting the car before and after to ensure the correct blast approach.

Got a resto you want to share? We’d love to see it! Share it on our Facebook page
