For what it is worth . I use a pressurized sand blaster and would never go back to a siphon blaster . It uses less air volume and much less sand and is much faster and more controllable, but , you problay wouldn't want to use it on the plastic fairings . As far as using a cheap siphon blaster, you can just use heater hose for the sand feed . There is no pressure so it doesn't wear. I just use play sand from Lowe's which is less than $5.oo for a 50 lb bag . BTW. I use an inline filter right at the blaster in addition to my water separator ..
