All of our Kiddie Rides are sandblasted/media blasted before the restoration process begins. All holes and cracks are repaired and filled. Next they are sanded down to a smooth finish. Once all the body work is complete, the rides are then primed and painted. Fine details such as the eyes and other features are hand painted on by a professional artist. Once the painting is completes, the ride gets sprayed with a clear coat for a high gloss durable finish.
