Paint refurbished on your classic vehicle can be truly transformational; however, the ability to achieve the desired results is dependent on many factors. Faded or “orange peeled” paint is easily enhanced through color sanding and buffing. Traditionally, buffing was performed with an “orbital” buffer. At It’s Alive we employ orbital buffers for initial “cutting”, but all buffing is performed with the World Class Rupes Random Orbital machines. We use Rupes buffers to avoid embedding swirl marks in the paint achieving Pebble Beach level finishes. If the paint is blistering or cracking, the color sanding and buffing approach will likely not be sufficient and “blended paint repair” may be necessary. Often the blisters are caused by submerged rust that might require removal and replacement prior to blending the paint. Each car is unique and our experts can recommend the optimal approach for your vehicle and budget. Regardless of the need, It’s Alive has the ability to bring your paint back to life and beauty!
