Stripping The SL500

Our soon-to-be stunning 1987 Mercedes SL500 is being prepped for a complete paint re-spray.

She’s been with us for over a year where we’ve worked tirelessly on repairing her body from an incredible amount of rust and damage. All the welding work is now complete though, so- it’s onto our precious paint shop!

First things first, all the old body paint has to be stripped so the entire shell can be prepped and primed ready for her final paint job.

We’ve used a highly erosive acidic paint stripper to remove all the old paint from the body work. If you look closely you can see the bubbles getting to work!
