respray, but that's hardly a halfbaked idea, so I bring you
the Drive-Through Sandblasting service. Here's how it
Prior to entry, the windscreen and all of the glass and
otherwise vulnerable areas are quickly masked off, using
range of stencils that are pre-cut to fit all models of car.
You then drive your car through, and just as with the
action of an automated car wash, powerful jets of sand
strip it down to the bare metal all over. The bare matt
metal is then polished to a mirror finish by the rapidly
spinning robotic brushes which rove over every square
of its surface.
On completion, your car emerges in gleaming raw metal,
like a jetstream caravan or a 1950's airforce jet.
To protect the finish, several surfaces are available by

||Ah yes, but that's why the "otherwise vulnerable
areas are masked off".

||You end up with a shiny version.
||Can you mount all your needed sand blasting projects on the outside of the vehicle? ........ How many times can a car go through?
