Full body & Paint Restoration
Our latest commission will get stripped down to bare metal for complete body and paint work. This 1987 Buick Grand National is one of those cool muscle cars from the 80s. It was one of the original ‘murdered-out’ paint schemes. The engine and suspension have already been updated so we aim to make the exterior as nice!
When you strip a car down to bare metal, you get to see all it’s flaws. This car has seen a few previous repairs and paint jobs. The rear quarter panel was replaced at some point and will need a proper fix as the previous work was not quite to our standard.
The hood had many layers of paint and primer. Some of which was fairly low quality. Stripping it bare will allow us to start with a good foundation. Prepping the metal is key to a great paint job that lasts. The picture below shows a hole in the quarter panel/trunk area that we will also fix. The pop riveted trunk support will also get welded for safety.
