Thoughts: On inexpensive soda blasters

This is on sale for $100: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=66742

I am doing some floor pan repair work and it might help to get those hard to reach spots. What are your thoughts on this?

Or do you think an abrasive blaster is the better option?

Or do you think I am being too paranoid? about my rust removal?
You can see some of the rust that I am dealing with in my photo journal:

you will find that soda will hardly touch rust. Looking at you journal, I think I would weld in the new panels and go the POR15 route.

Thats what I was wondering. I know the abrasive sanders would get the rust off but I guess I'll just figure it out as I go.

I use abrasive and of the metal is so thin that the abrasive exposes holes and such i feel it needs new metal anyway. So i blast most everything and make patches..That is just what I would do..others may differ..
