1984 Dodge Ram Van Restored!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1984 Dodge Ram Van. This old-school conversion van came to our shop in dire need of lots and lots of help. As the pictures show, all of its original paint had either failed or had been sanded completely off! Since bare metal rusts extremely quickly we got it inside our shop as soon as we could, and began a sanding process of our own. We started by removing all of the old, failing paint with an extremely abrasive power sander, this took the exterior of the van down to bare metal in most areas. Once the sanding had been finished it was ready for primer, we sealed the entire van with our premium "Etching Primer"--a sealer that "eats" into the surface that it is applied to. As soon as the sealer was applied, the van was ready for two coats of new paint. The owner decided to have the van refinished with our "Bay Blue Effect" Enamel + UV protectant paint, for a long lasting durable finish that stands out from the crowd!
