You may have recently seen the new series of “Wheeler Dealers” on Discovery Channel, including the episode restoring an extremely rare 1967 Amphicar. The programme’s presenter, Mike Brewer, bought the car from a private seller in America – at the highest purchase price to date on the show.
Now that the episode has finally aired, we can proudly confirm that Soda Blasting Ltd were the people trusted to complete the paint stripping process for the TV show, with a little help from co-presenter Edd China.
We spent a week with the Wheeler Dealers team, allowing the crew plenty of time to film Edd blasting a small segment of the car, before we were able to bring the work up to standard over two days.
Here’s the car once it was fully restored and ready to sell, being test driven on the River Thames!
