Classic Car Paint Micro Stripping For Restoration & Rust Removal

Classic cars, motorbikes, kit cars & custom built cars can all be gently stripped back removing paint, rust, varnish, wax, oil stains and much more for restoration.

Beam Clean & Restore use a gentle chemical free low pressure revolutionary cleaning process called micro stripping that enable us to safely remove paint and rust taking the body shell back down to scratch for re painting.

We work at pressures of 30 psi (3 bar) or below and use a media that is specially formulated for this process of cleaning and restoration. The super fine angular grains leave a slight etch on the shell which is a tolerance of between 50 – 70 microns – the required level for paint stickiness. There is no heat generated and therefore no distortion of the bodywork will occur.

Car Body Stripping Techniques

We do not use soda to blast for this method of cleaning and stripping the bodywork as it is, too expensive, too slow, leaves a completely smooth finish on steel, which is not what you need when reapplying a new coat of paint and will not remove corrosion effectively.

Another alternative that is sometimes used is dipping in acid but potential issues occur here when the acid gets into other areas and doesn’t dry completely then leaks out onto the new paintwork – disaster!

Our technicians are highly skilled and experienced and will insist that you agree a small sample area before continuing with your project. We understand that your classic vehicle is a precious thing to you and we will work closely with you to ensure the results are what you are looking for.

We will always carry out a small sample area first so that you can see the results prior to completing your project.

We can now accept car parts at our unit near to Bewdley, Worcestershire. Doors, panels, frames, motorbikes and smaller items can be delivered here or collected for an additional fee. Vehicles in complete form can be cleaned at either a unit of your choosing or at your private premises.

Our technicians are passionate about classic cars and motorbikes, are highly trained and skilled and will treat your prized possession with the upmost of care and respect.

Frequently Asked Questions About Classic Car Paint Stripping For Restoration

CAN YOU STRIP THE WHOLE BODYSHELL ?

Yes, but currently we are not able to take whole body shells on site. Cleaning of these wold need to be carried out at a premises of your choice. Smaller items such as motorbikes, parts, wheels etc can be delivered to our unit near Bewdley, Worcestershire.

I ONLY WANT YOU TO CLEAN THE EXTERIOR READY FOR A RE-SPRAY – CAN YOU HELP ?

Yes, and as before if it is a full body shell this can be done at a premises of your choice and smaller items can be delivered to our unit. We will protect openings to the engine, air intakes, heaters etc. The media is non-abrasive but we will all the same mask windows, windscreens, chrome etc . as a precaution.

DO I HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASHBOARD ?

Yes, ideally. The dust will find its way into the instruments and it is not worth the risk.

CAN YOU CLEAN – ALLOY & STEEL AND DO TYRES NEED TO BE REMOVED ?

Yes we can and no, tyres do not have to be removed. The media bounces off rubber.

The process was sensitive to the special integrity of the building

‘We witnessed Beam Clean & Restore carry out works in a property in Little Neston to remove a dark brown paint application from beams and other timbers in the property such as door lintels and architraves. Having inspected the materials to be used in the cleaning, the methodology and a sample of an area of cleaned timber, I was satisfied that the process was sensitive to the special integrity of the building. It is worthwhile noting that many of the timbers have suffered extensive damage from beetle infestation (no longer active) and the operation to remove paint did not result in any further damage to the timbers.’

Nothing was too much trouble

‘I am really happy, you were courteous, tidied up behind yourselves and even on difficult areas such as the thin oak panelling on the walls it came up really well. It was very dark oak everywhere and I ended up doing the bannisters, floors, doors and beams too! Nothing was too much trouble.’
