    I have been media blasting for 33 years and I have a Dustless Blasting rig and of course a dry blasting pot. Doing my old cars and motorcycles got me into this at the age of 19 and I made a career out of it instead of remaining an engineer for PPG paint division after I came out of college. I have done thousands of cars, trucks, and bikes over these years because people know that I am delicate with them because I love old cars. This is my hobby and my life. I will be glad to answer any questions that you have about any of these processes and help you ask the right questions to get the right person to do your cars if that is what you want.

    Saw this at SEMA when they introduced it a few years ago.

    Anybody actually tried it?
    Might be a good way to go.

    The reviews I saw on it were not that good. And replacement drums are not cheap for how long they last.

    What are your thoughts on the SODA blasting routing.

    I've heard Soda blasting takes a LONG time to cut through paint and doesn't hardly touch rust at all. I guess its just not very abrasive.

    Correct. Does not do much for rust. But does not warp panels. And after your are done soda you can do spot sand...
