Holy smokes do these look good or what? Exactly what the doctor ordered… I’m not really a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once. These babys were completely rebuilt & the only thing that is really from 1966 is the metal seat frame. It’s been soda-blasted (similar to sand-blasting) and repainted. The “blatters” have been replaced with new, as well as 100% of the cushions. There is memory foam in the actual seat area, and I specifically asked to have the lumbar area built up for extra comfort on long flights. I can’t wait to use them!

How this process works is they apply a coating of stripper and let it sit for about hour. They scrub it off and apply another coat of stripper. After it has sat for a while they use a high pressure, high temperature wash & it’s pretty much bare aluminum at that point. Any small parts that were missed, are then stripped with a paintbrush & the chemical stripper.
