Sharp Details has introduced a complete paint restoration and protection process for aircraft.
“This is a process that offers significant cost savings over repainting the aircraft,” said President and CEO Jim Garland. “In addition to the outright cost of stripping and repainting an aircraft, it must be taken out of service for two or three weeks and a replacement aircraft acquired, which simply adds to the cost of repainting. Our process can be completed in two to three days and is an excellent way to revive an aircraft while deferring the paint job to coincide with a future heavy maintenance event.”
The process involves three steps: A compounding process is used to restore the paint and remove imperfections; a finer compound is used to enhance the color and shine; and finally a paint sealant is applied.
Cost to restore a Gulfstream III would range between $5,000 and $7,000, depending on the condition of the aircraft.
