|The Classic Body Shop
is a division of The 2CV Shop - the only 2CV
Specialists to invest in shot blasting facilities.
The Classic Body Shop we have invested in our own shot
blasting facility. We have a 6mx4m rubber lined room. This
removes all paint and rust back to clean metal.
This is the only effective way to remove all rust from
metal. The type of shot we use does not dent or distort
the body shell or panels. We are one of a small handful of
classic car specialists (and
the only 2CV specialist) to carry out this operation.
The aim in shot blasting is to remove the rust. In most
cases rust starts from the inside, but you cannot see if
from the outside of the panel. For example in a box section,
if the metal is rusty the blasting will create a hole, thus
revealing the existence of the rust on the inside to us -
then we can deal with it.
Not any old shot blasting company can blast a car; shot
blasting is usually done on very thick steel such as cast
iron and RSJs. If you take a car to a shot blaster and they
blast it the way they blast normally, the car will be
distorted. This is why we invested in our own shot blasting
equipment so that we can do the work ourselves and guarantee
