What we do.
Our current process is to degrease the underbody with FXdegreaser. Following this we pressure wash at 2900PSI to remove all loose and friable paint/ rust.
Next step we use a 90KW heavy duty steam cleaner and we clean the entire underbody area to be painted. After this process is complete we also steam the internals of the chassis and any cavities to be treated. This process often takes a full day to this point with temperatures up to 155C.
Once the vehicle is fully cleaned, we then remove parts. Parts we remove for example on a defender are:-
- Central Crossmember
- Muddflaps front and rear
- Rear Shock absorbers
- Rear shock absorber mounts
- Front bumper
- Front jack rubbers
- Front and rear bump stops
- Tow pack including Nas step if fitted
- Steering/ sump guards
- Front grill
- Side step supports
- Fuel cooler
- Fuel filter cover/ back plate
Mating faces are then cleaned and prepped further.
The next step is to inspect the chassis for welding repairs (charged additionally), and to descale the chassis where required. We then key the chassis and thin any existing coating for full inspection using sanders and other abrasive methods- (many coatings on chassis even from new appear ok and have underlying issues, so to simply paint over them is a false economy).
