Seat Frame Media Blasting?

Believe it or not - in the great City of New York, I cannot find anyone to blast the seat frame of my 1970 Cadillac.

Does anyone know of any web sites offering this servie at a reasonable price? I own a blasting cabinet but this thing is too long to put in it.

Buy some bagged sand, strain it and blast it outside since you have the setup already. Just an idea.

You really don't have to media blast the frame, just use a wire wheel on a drill, clean it up, and spray it with a rust neutralizer like LocTite Extend, which comes in aerosol cans. I know, I know.........some people think these neutralizers are worthless, but for a structurally sound car seat, they do just fine.

I ordered two cans of this stuff last night. Total cost is $20.19. I trust you - so I'm going with this stuff since I have the wire wheel and electric drill. I want to get this seat back together to see the results.

Just read the directions and spray away. It turns the rust black and then the rust won't get worse. Painting the frame that is never seen and springs that flex is a waste of time anyway. The paint has to flake off at some point.

Well, I used the stuff and it looks like it dried clear. Some parts did turn black but not all of it

That's the way it works, unless there's active rust it won't change to black. The point is that now you've got a nice clean frame to work with.
