About our exterior services
At Klassic Rides we can handle any kind of paint work, from a concourse restoration, using original colors, to a resto-mod or hot rod using custom paint. Some of the types of custom painting that can be done at our shop are: (Metal Flake, Heavy Metal Flake, Flames, Candies and Lace Panels) Our Paint Technician is a certified PPG paint technician has over 25 years of experience in paint and body.
Both our paint booths are side down draft equipped with extra fine media filters and furnace systems. They have a Desiccant dryer system with a 3 tank setup. (This assures us protection from paint contamination from our air system.) Our booths are lined with 18 four foot by four tube fluorescent fixtures with daylight bulbs for optimal lighting, for a total of 72 bulbs! We use state of the art Sata RP paint guns. We use the Deltron 2000 (DBC) line.
Body and Metal Fabrication
Our Body and Metal Fabricators have over 60 years of combined experience. They are skilled in metal work, rust removal, and body blocking and Paint preparation.
Body Work Process
Before a car is ever ready for paint, at Klassic Rides, we go through a thorough process to make sure that your car is done right the first time! The first step in our body work process is to media blast the car. (This will allow for a clean surface and will reveal if there is any need of rust removal.) After media blast, the car is then prepared for epoxy. This is accomplished by using a wash primer, followed by an epoxy primer that is allowed to cure for 7 days. (This is done to protect the car from rusting.) If by chance the car is in need of rust removal, our skilled technicians will then do the necessary metal work and fabrication. During this process, any welded seams are then media blasted, followed by wash primer and epoxy primer. (This will prevent any rust from occurring after the repair process.) After these steps are executed, our body technicians will then begin body work. (This is a labor intensive process.) The body work begins with applying an prep epoxy, followed by a skin coat with polyester products. A polyester primer is then applied to the body of the car and this is recoated as needed. During this long procedure there are many hours of blocking to smooth the cars body. Finally a car will be ready for paint! At Klassic Rides, we believe in quality of work not in expediency! We treat your car as we would our own, by doing things the right way the first time!

About our hydro-dip services
Hydrographics is a method of applying printed patterns on 3D objects, commonly called Water Transfer Printing.
A Poly-vinyl film is laid in a specially designed dipping tank and an activator chemical is applied to the film. This activator dissolves the film into liquid ink which stays a float on the surface of the water. Then an object is dipped slowly through the floating ink and the pattern is transferred to the object. Last, an automotive grade clear coat is applied to protect the finish.
Our hydro-dip services
The hydrographics process can be done on any material that can hold the base coat and that can be submerged into water safely. Some of the materials that can be hydro-dipped are: metals, wood, plastic, stone, Bakelite, ceramic, etc.Contact us about hydro-dip services
