How to Build a Muscle Car - Stripping

After you tear down the car, you might want to consider having it stripped. There are several stripping methods and they vary in price according to the company performing the task. The most common method is media blasting, where particles of walnuts and plastic are used. This method leaves you with the rough, “gray primer” look. You can also try soda blasting, which uses baking soda at high pressure and leaves you with a clean, shiny, “fresh from the factory” look. We personally recommend this method to our customers. There is also a method called acid dipping, where the car is lowered into a pool of liquid acid to remove paint and bondo.
