How heavy is the paint on there? If truly factory, you can probably get the front side of a fender done in around an hour.

The key to using that type of disc is moving around and never letting the surface get too hot. Never use a wire wheel on a hood. It'll warp in about 30 seconds.

If you want to save money, you can get these for your variable speed polisher. I think I did an entire car with 2 or 3 of them.

Another trick is, if you can strip the top layer or two of paint with airplane paint stripper, wash off the surface, and then use the Eastwood tool or disc above.

A thing to worry about blasting is, unless you go to someone who has a good reputation, the chances of warping is pretty good going that route as well.

Hello Mike, It would be best if you delivered the sides to me. We don't normally go mobile for a job that size. Is it a short bed or long bed? Short bed will run you 55.00 a side, long bed 65.00 a side. That would be for both the inside and outside. We also have the ability to prime it for you if need be. Give me a call or keep the e-mails coming. V/R Rob

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

Just got back to reading this, the SCT tool uses the same type of material that Grumpy posted. But it's over a larger area. The tool in variable speed and pretty much eats up the paint quickly.

Never use a fine grit paper to remove paint to much friction and no air circulating between the abrasive and panel . I always use 60 or down to 36 grit for initial removal.

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

Just for the hell of it I did the bottom of the fender on my 68 . Lapse between sanding and picture a second or two. Temp went up 8 . Speed at #3 of 6 .

I would stay away from soda blasting , I know when I spoke with PPG reps and also barry at SPI ,I was told do not soda blast , appantly if you do not remove 100% of the soda film you will definitly have adhesion problems and you paint will fail. SPI told me that there is no way to get your metal 100% free of the film ,he said there is just no way you can get in all the places the media blaster got to. also PPG told me that soda blasting will not remove any rust if you have rust in any area the soda will not remove it.

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

I got in the drill stripping wheel grumpy posted.

It seems super aggressive definitely taking a little metal with it. Maybe I am being too cautious? I know I could go over it with a less aggressive grit. The heat input is about the same as my adjustable speed buffer setup.

Its interesting that the SCT tool with that same looking wheel leaves a much smoother finish and wow 8 degrees?? Its must be the drum rotation that makes all the difference. Thanks for the info/pics

FYI I attempted to email that address and it failed to deliver. I am going to try the number Monday. Not finding an actual website for them so its not looking good. Those quotes sound really good, hopefully he is still around.

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

Some interesting views here for sure, Liking the heat monitored thing. I would say those quotes were for exterior only? Or all sides of the panels?

When they do cars in the youtube videos you always see them just focusing on outside the vehicle.

This process, for my desires, would be the entire piece, inside and out. The only other process that will strip everything would be the acid dip bath.

So how can I compare an abrasive wheel in cost, to the areas I could not get into. Again sand or media blasting to get it done.

I like the tool. Works great if anyone would like to try it I'll bring it to Carlisle with my genie. You can have at a fender or hood. I have no skin in the game it just works well

Not sure what your asking but if the outside that's being sanded isn't that much above ambient then the other side of the panel would be cooler

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

I think he's talking about stripping all surfaces, both sides, nooks and crannies

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

That Eastwood tool is cool but I didn't want to buy one and have to order their wheels for it , Using an air side grinder with scotch pads and the 3 M wheels worked great along with the cheap sand blast set up to get all the nooks and crannies . More labor but the cheapest way to do it and have it come out clean ready for epoxy prime . If your going to take all the time and expense to paint it . Paint all of it .

GO

the

That's what matters. The easiest ways are the most expensive ways. They've always had elbow grease and it's still cheap as it ever was, still works the same.

I used chemical stripper on the cab for my '67. It's been 10 years in primer with no issues from stripper residue. It's a clean metal rust free cab, but I would sandblast places like drip rail, window openings, jambs, other seams, floor, etc. When I don't want to sandblast pitted sheet metal I use a rust convertor

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

I blast seams and use a D/A for the rest. Seems to work good for me. My powdercoat guy and I have built up a good relationship but that’s for powdercoat. He likes to blast and coat ASAP. If I was going for rotisserie show resto I’d dip the whole thing. Dipping has been around for a long time and I could be wrong but I think hydrogen embrittlement applies to something else entirely. .02$

May,
that top link buzz what ever was recent i googled them before i posted the link. So who knows.

Also I seen some work on face book for Bay City Classics in Norfolk, the guy was doing sheet metal on a 72 cab, it looked good. As soon as I finish stripping mine i am going to take it over for a estimate and see what they said

Re: Dustless Blasting / media blasting quote

Just to add to the quotes. I had a dustless blasting company give me a quote for my 73 Camaro. Trunk, fenders, hood. Outside only. $500! I don't think so!
