Dry Ice Cleaning
Dry ice, or frozen carbon dioxide, can be very beneficial in restoring and preserving undercarriages on classic and custom vehicles. It can also enormously maximize a car’s value and selling price. Using dry ice has been proven to increase a vehicle’s value up to 50%. This method has been proven to be the most innovative
solution offered in the automotive market. With dry ice, we can restore underbodies to levels unobtainable by other methods currently available. A vehicle can only be original once.
Dry ice has become the new benchmark in vehicle detail circles, for moderns or classics. MotoeXotica Classic Cars offers this service, at $100 per hour and $1 per pound of dry ice. Cleaning via dry ice can be used on a wide variety of intricate, difficult or surfaces otherwise impossible to reach by hand. Beyond undercarriages, dry ice can be used on wheels and tires; wheel wells; engine bays; harnesses; suspension pieces; transmissions; brake lines; brake hardware; trim, plastic, rubber and glass
pieces; and many other components. The only upholstered surface we cannot recommend using dry ice on is leather.
It is mainly used to achieve factory-new-like results. It requires no water or chemicals and there is no parts disassembly required. This service is also non-conductive to any electrical components, so it is safe to use around batteries, starters, spark plug wires and underhood computer hardware. Dry ice can completely remove a wide variety of stubborn exterior contaminants: asphalt, tar, tree sap, paint
drips, oxidation, discoloring, oil, carbon build-up, wet or dry grease, mildew, sludge, grime, dirt, mud, stickers and more. Cleaning via dry ice can do the job in a few hours, not a few weeks.
For example, we had a customer who brought in their 7,000-mile classic Corvette that was perfect but had a dealer’s undercoating. Within about eight days, the car was like new underneath; even the original factory chalk marks were visible!
Most importantly, dry ice cleaning is proven to be a non-abrasive method compared to hand-scrubbing, sandblasting, soda dipping or vapor honing. Our No. 1 goal and priority as mentioned above, is to preserve and protect the vehicle’s originality.
We would love the opportunity to show you the true potential behind this service for automotive restorations. Call us for a quote then bring your vehicle to MotoeXotica Classic Cars for a dry ice cleaning today!
