1950’s Hearse

This 1950’s hearse is the perfect example to why soda blasting is the best method of paint removal.  Being a vintage vehicle, it had been ‘touched up’ and re-painted several times, meaning each panel of the bodywork needed to be intensely cleaned. Had other methods of blast cleaning been used, there would have been a …
