Classic Auto Body One of the most essential steps in a car body repair and restoration is stripping away old products such as seam sealer, body filler and paint, along with rust. If these offenders are not removed they will most likely rear their ugly heads on an otherwise perfect vintage auto body restoration. At Select Motors we use the chemical stripping and e-coating process to assure we start your restoration project with the cleanest body panels possible.
