Need my 35 Cab blasted in Southern California

Looking to get my 35 Chevy pickup blasted in the Temecula area. Anybody know any good shops that dont kill you on price? I need the interior and exterior blasted? Do I then get it all put into primer? I appreciate the help guys.

Joshua

Well first let's clarify that you are need to bring it to a professional who regularly does classic cars. DO NOT SANDBLAST the body, be sure they are using some other media. I am no expert sandblaster so while I don't know what TO DO, I sure as heck have seen what can happen when you do what you are NOT suppose to do.

I had a professional sandblaster destroy a few vintage doors for me (we are talking 34 Ford and 28 Buick). We are not talking "darn it, I have more work" kinda damage, we are talking "&%$#, IT'S RUINED AND HAS TO BE THROWN AWAY!" kinda damage.

And I have read too many stories on forums with the same experiences, classic, beautiful cars being DESTROYED by some guy who did a fine job sandblasting farm implements. Sheetmetal and tractor frame are two totally different things.

Be careful, very careful.

Brian

Right you are Brian......What kills me is these restoration shows on TV, show the guy blasting away on these cars and them not mentioning the damage that can be done... ....They make it look all so easy

Media blasting is what I am looking for. Should I just do it all myself by hand? It's a small cab.

"Media" is what ANYTHING you blast with is called, sand, soda, glass beads, this is the "media".

Like I said, I have little experience in the subject so I can't offer a lot. I do know that you don't want soda as it will need a painstaking neutralizing or can cause you all kinds of trouble. Most all paint manufacturers say DO NOT soda blast for this reason.

From what I understand there are only a few that will touch the rust, I know plastic doesn't, it only removes paint and that is about it.

The thing is, does it really need to be striped like that? Can you sand off the paint on all the flat panels and then spot blast at home tight spots in the jambs and such that you can't sand out easy? Is the floor and inner structure all rusted ? I will have the same decisions to make on my next project.

Brian

Locate a powder coating facility. If they can't do the work they will know someone that can. Temecula area there should be half a dozen within 25 miles.
