We’re a Houston Texas based company that has repaired thousands of vehicles managing claims all over the United States. We specialize in the removal of industrial paint overspray and auto paint restoration. My company has repaired thousands of vehicles in the past two decades. This blog is about repairing old school rides from paint overspray. The vehicles in the photos and the videos linked below are part of two separate claims that I managed. One group of 250 vehicles are owned by a private customer that keeps them stored in an unknown to the public very large building. There was some construction going on to the building next door and one of the care takers of the vehicles left several of the bay doors open and every vehicle was damaged with paint overspray.
When I arrived on the job, all of the cars looked like they had a heavy layer of dust on them. This was not dust, it was industrial paint overspray. Every unit was damaged from the top to the bottom. These were not just ordinary old school rides, lots of them were very rare low number cars with original paint. 30% of these vehicles had lacquer paint because of their age. Clear-coat was never heard of in the 20s and 30s just old school rub it out lacquer. The second group of vintage and muscle cars were damaged while at the POCI convention in Tulsa at the Crowne Plaza. For three days while the vehicles were on display, a paint crew on top of the building next door sprayed away.
The insurer of the paint company was about to pay hundreds of claimants thousands of dollars for complete paint jobs. The insurer payed for five vehicles to be repainted at an average cost of 18,000 dollars before calling us to do the repairs. I drove to Tulsa to demonstrate my cleaning process to 150 members at the convention hall. I used Auto Magic clay bar for 80% of the vehicles, but some of them were so badly damaged that I had to used my blading technique. I used a single edged carbon tipped razor blade while the owners observed my process to repair their vehicle.
The only other way to remove this much industrial paint overspray 100% would be to wet-sand their vehicles. The problem with that is, it would have greatly diminish the clear-coats on some and most definitely the lacquer paint jobs. This would have effected the overall worth of a vehicle. I traveled over 40 thousands miles all over the United States and beyond to repair these vehicles onsite. This was an international event with rides from all the way back to 1911 to 2008. I met some very cool people along the way and seen lots beautiful places. The total number of vehicles repaired on both claims is 452. There are great examples of American engineering at its best.
