Our latest project Holden VL sandblasting and Spray Painting for Jake

<strong>OUR LATEST PROJECT</strong>
Jake brought his Holden VL into Ublast Pty Ltd and asked “What is the best way to strip my car and get it re sprayed? Rather than stuff around with a bit of rust repair here and paint touch-up there, I’m considering taking it to someone and having it stripped back to bare metal and resprayed in the same 2-pac metallic light blue or crimson red? Obviously the cost would depend on the extent of rust repairs required, but excluding that how much (roughly) would I be looking at to get the full rub back and respray?”
We explained in detail to Jake the most efficient way is to totally strip his car of all the trim, take windscreens out, remove all your interior and exterior parts. Once you have prepared your car, bring it into Ublast and we will start the process of sandblasting it. When the sandblasted car is complete we can clean out all the abrasive, vacuum all the contaminates and start prepping it for spray painting.
You can spend a fortune and end up with a poor job or take it a professional company and get them to do a fantastic job. We want to make sure Jake gets a fantastic job and is happy with the finished product. Preparation of any surface is the key to making sure the paint sticks to the surface properly. With a clean surface the paint will adhere so much better and last a lot longer, there are several ways to remove paint and rust, acid dipping, chemical application and more. The most efficient way is sandblasting. No more preparation is needed after your item has been sandblasted especially for metal items as the surface is back to it’s original state and ready to be etch primed and have base coat and top coat applied.

 

Bedford Van for sandblasting This is our project at Ublast Pty Ltd or Narre Warren Sandblasting

Bedford Vehicles, usually shortened to just Bedford, was a brand of vehicle produced by Vauxhall Motors, which was ultimately owned by General Motors (GM). Established in 1930 and constructing commercial vehicles, Bedford Vehicles was a leading international lorry brand, with substantial export sales of light, medium, and heavy lorries throughout the world. It was GM Europe‘s most profitable venture for several years. Bedford’s smallest products, car-derived vans, were the Bedford HA van, which substantially outlived the Vauxhall Viva HA on which it was based, and the Bedford Chevanne, a short-lived variant of the Vauxhall Chevette. An estate conversion of the HA van by Martin Walter was marketed as the Bedford Beagle. This was further developed into a camper van, the Roma, again by Martin Walter.

This is our project at Ublast Pty Ltd or Narre Warren Sandblasting

We are helping Craig restore his Bedford Van by sandblasting all the old paint and remove the rust from the surface. You can see if the pictures this Van needs some loving and with hard work and time, she will look fantastic again. Craig has asked if we can sandblast underneath and the exterior of the van to prepare it for spray painting. The roof and side walls are fragile and sand blasting can damage the panels. With our air pressure turned right down and using a very soft abrasive, we can confidently sandblast all the panels and roof without any warping. These Bedford Vans are a classic antique vintage car and removing the paint and rust would take extremely long hours to remove by hand. Sandblasting is the quickest way but you still have to be careful in the application of paint stripping.

Once this Bedford Van has been sandblasted, Craig can take it and apply an etch primer to protect the van from further rusting. With some light sanding and preparation to get the van ready for spray painting, she will be back on the road in no time.
