Soda Blasting

I Am Restoring A 1953 Ford Pickup And I Just Heard About Soda Blasting To Strip Paint And Clean. Does Anyone Have Any Experience With Soda Blasting?

Can't say I've been thrilled with it, but it works. Just be sure to use something like PPG's DX520 to neutralize the alkalinity and treat the metal prior to priming.

soda basting

Thanks for the input I will do some more digging. The truck (1953 F-100) I will be using it on is completly disassembled so it will be easy to neutralize. I will not use it on the cab (interior or exterior) I plan to use it on fenders, hood, bed and tailgate. All of the above has very little or no rust at all. just old paint with some chips. I also plan to prime the parts within a day or two of blasting.

If I decide to buy a small soda blaster. Do you have any recomendations? My friends and I are planning on restoring three trucks over the next year or so. From what I have read a small blaster ($1000.) can be pretty handy to do lots of other types of cleaning.

Or may I better to leave it to the "Blaster Pro's"??

Input from anyone will be appeciated.
