Be honest. It's about "The Look" too. At Mantell Motorsport we're also expert in "media blasting" and "powder coating".
Media Blasting involves the stripping and preparation of various surfaces for paint without damaging underlying material. The process is similar to sand-blasting, except we carefully select from a range of abrasives to assure the best results.
Powder Coating is a superior alternative to painting or plating for many metallic automotive parts and other items that require an especially tough, attractive protective coating. Powder Coating is a baked-on plastic finish. It's available in an almost unlimited range of colors. The application process is environmentally friendly; no volatile solvents are released into the air. The process also yields a consistent coating thickness - free from drips, runs, or sags. But the biggest selling point of Powder Coating is superior durability in terms of chip-and-scratch resistance, solvent and fuel resistance, and color stability.
