  • How does Shot Blast Cleaning work on Cars?

Shot blasting is an effective way to strip away paint, rust, and other debris from the surface of your cars empty body shell or chassis (as well as steel and alloy wheels).

By directing a pressured stream of abrasive material at the car body, we remove old paint and surface rust, leaving a clean, profiled surface ready for painting. This is ideal for customers looking to have their car prepared for a bare metal respray, or vehicle bodyshops getting ready to perform a bare metal respray.

To make sure that the car is ready to be shot blasted, make sure you remove all parts that don’t want to be shot blasted, such as drivetrain, lights, glass, bumpers and trim. We’ll then move the car body shell into our self-contained blasting room, where it is secured in place to prevent movement during the blasting process.

Once securely in place we’ll carefully start to shot blast the car body to remove any rust and paint, and to create an even profiled finish. Once blasting is complete, we’ll blow the car down to remove as much dust and debris as possible.

  • What is the process to get my Car Body Shot Blasted?

Intercity Contractors have been shot blasting classic cars for over 25 years. In 2022, we set up our top of the range blast room at our Coventry location, which allows us to use steel grit to blast clean anything that fits inside. To take advantage of the blast room, you need to bring your car body (stripped of all parts you don’t want blasted) to our Coventry facility.

Once at the facility you’ll be able to take advantage of our self-contained and spacious blast room, where our team of shot blasting experts will be on hand to use and adjust the specialist equipment to deliver the results you need. We work closely with classic car bodyshops so we are well experienced in stripping and preparing vehicle bodywork for classic car restoration.

As our blast room is indoors, we’re able to offer our services regardless of weather conditions, allowing us to complete your car shot blasting project quicker than our competitors. Using an interior blast room also allows us to better protect your car body as after shot blasting, metals are more vulnerable to rusting, but our weather proof blast room eliminates any chance the weather can cause any rust damage!

  • Why should you get your Car Shot Blasted?

If you’re looking to clean up your car body, or are looking to restore a classic car, then shot blasting is a fantastic way to strip away the build up of rust and grime, and to remove paint.

By firing abrasive material at the car we can strip away everything problematic and leave a smooth even finish which cane be used as the basis for future paint work.

Shot blasting is more forgiving on vehicles that have had filler repairs in the past, unlike acid-dipping which can give devastating results.

  • What is Shot Blasting??

Shot blasting (previously known ad Sand Blasting) is a form of mechanical cleaning that can be used to remove rust, paint, and other types of debris from surfaces such as metal, timber, brick and concrete.

Shot Blasting is a very common way to restore vehicle parts such as alloy wheels, and is also commonly used to clean and restore car chassis, including on classic cars.

It is much more efficient than traditional methods of preparing bodywork, such as sanding, and much more forgiving than acid-dipping.
