Rust sand and soda blasting

Post by jimmy_bob on 11/12/2009, 1:41 pm

i recently brought a WB panel van which is in pretty good nic. of course it still needs to be rid of rust and eventually painted but my question is has anyone had any experience with sand/soda blasting??? at the moment it is stripped down and i have found some rust (not to major) but just want to know if anyone knows much about blasting and if anyone could recomend somewhere that does blasting and rust repair near ROMSEY........ yes i know, google it and its 8km from the centre of vic.

soda blasting is the best as it wont distort any large panels and leaves a much smoother surface tor paint prep.

a good one to try os Soda blast:

Sanding

Post by jimmy_bob on 13/12/2009, 1:00 am

thanks menace. now i'm wondering about the sanding part. ive got a bit of surface rust and i really need it gone but i really havnt done anything this big before. ive only done plastic bumpers sanding back and getting repainted. does anyone have any advice when it comes to sanding the panels back so i can get it painted. ie what size grit should i be using. Also, the gutter that runs along the top of the van is fairly rusted, has anyone ever cut this off and sanded it back???

if your getting it soda blasted you dont need to pre sand anything if they do it right. if you still need to sand some parts someone else will give advice on that.

Heres a sample of Soda blasting:
