Paint RemovalPaint Removal is often associated with pollution. Here at Michel's Collision & Restoration we use minimal paint stripper as a last resort. Usually the paint can be sanded off without the use of stripper. Note that stripper is NOT allowed to work its way into seams.
Floor Pan ReplacementFloor Pan Replacement is a multi step process. First of all, the interior MUST be protected from hot grindings and later, welding splatter and heat. After drilling and cutting welds, the remaining edges need to be prepped to accept the new pan. All weld areas are ground and or sandblasted to clean bare metal. Weld thru primer is then applied. This prevents future corrosion between overlapping panels. Any panel being replaced is fit, plug weld holes drilled, weld-thru primed, and screwed into place. At this point the panel is welded and we know it is exactly where it needs to be. After grinding welds, the panel is sanded and epoxied. Then seam sealer is applied to edges. After the sealer is cured the Floor Pan is ready for the refinishing process.
Dash RefinishHere we masked off the rest of the interior around the dash and then applied beige paint to refinish the dash panel to be shiny and new.
Exterior Paint RefinishHere we refinished the sides. The hood, jambs, and interior are all Refinished separately. This affords our clients a cleaner paint job.
