The $750 was for the painted part of the body, incl. two doors and the hood. The body was mounted on a sturdy roll-around platform as opposed to the chassis. It was not necessary to do the under part of the shell, nor would it have even been possible to flip the body over (very fragile).

The soda media was really tough as it went through a layer of paint; a layer of gray primer; a layer of red oxide primer; and then to a yellow coat of some type of filler material. (They did not use gelcoat back then). He stopped just before it hit the glass layer. But I could not even imagine the mess I would have had to deal with had I used a chemical stripper!

Overall, I'm very pleased...but now the hard work begins!

Do a search with Google.....you can draw your own conclusions about the health risks associated with sand when it fractures due to impact or high shear and getting into your lungs.......
my resperator is a 3M unit with the purple filters(well purple and black). purple for sand/dust and the black for fumesfrom paint and strippers. they aren't cheap, but cheap insureance... i learned my lesson and use it at the minimum.

I've used that black-beauty stuff before, it's fairly expensive but works good.

The black stuff I just got was less than $10 a 88# bag of fine. So that's not that pricy. You can see the results on my journal. That's with a heavy home pressure blaster, not the cheapy harbor freight ones. It takes the paint pretty easily and leaves a satiny looking finish that is supposed to be ready to prime with epoxy after some cleaner).

degreaser for the grease to get to where you can see what you working with first, baking soda for the paint, starblast for the rust, but be careful to not warp the panels.

Good questions but why resurrect a 2 or 3 year old thread?

Shine, Do you have a local source for Starblast? I blast steel tube aircraft fuselages and when I bought my blast pot I was given a bag of Starblast. I liked it a lot better than the black iron slag I had been using. Would like to see a picture of your blast room. I am currently blasting outside with a large tarp to catch and reclaim my media. Time and money. I hope to build a room after I recover from the new pressure pot and Nova hood. I love the Nova hood. The cool air is great and I can actually see what I am blasting now.
