What will the Monaro look like once it's done?

EP.2: THE MONARO STRIPS OFF
MEDIA BLASTING STRIPS BACK THE YEARS
Before the Monaro can head off to panel and paint, we need to strip back the layers of paint and bog accumulated over the years. Watch as the 60psi fine-grade Garnet media blasting reveals the bare body work underneath.
MEET OUR MASTER OF PANEL
Ian has been in the panel beating industry since he left school and certainly knows his way around an old classic Holden. It's a good job, because as Greg Murphy and Ian reveal, the Monaro needs some serious love to get her ready to give away.
