For classic, vintage and muscle car restorations it is absolutely essential that surface preparation prior to painting is of a very, very high standard. Without this component, not even Michael Angelo could make the paint work look passable!! At Muscle Car Garage we only use the BEST primers and are maticulous in our attention to detail.
Lead loading is a dying art form that involves the use of lead to fill dents and smooth out joints. It is the traditional technique once used by car manufacturers and repairers to ensure a quality, fully water proof result. While plastic fillers have come a long way in recent times there are just some jobs that are best fixed with a dose of the traditional approach!
