Pics looks really nice of the car and it was just restored.

Was it a poor restoration?

Yes the car was not prepped properly and the paint is peeling in sections. The original shop is no longer in business apparently.

I hope the panels weren't warped by the blasting? What media did they use?

I only mention this because when my Giulia Spider was in for body and paint work, there was another '64 like mine, except it had warped rear quarters due to being set upon by some local sand blasters that had no experience with "exoctic" sheet metal. The owner of the body shop tried to warn the owner of the Spider against such methods, to no avail. It required several hours of body work to correct the mistake,

Fortunately, he used dustless blasting on my Spider with very fine abrasives and water and things were fine. I hope yours turned out the same
