Which car is the dash from?
Great work replacing all that crusty sheetmetal.

That is a 69-70 dash and dash panel.

Before and after Dustless Blasting!! Man, It looks so good! Next step is to fix some rusted through spots and then paint it with Rust Bullet. Check out the video below!

It will be done in stages. Didn't want to blast the whole car unless I am ready to paint the whole thing, which I am not ready to do. I didn't want parts of the car sitting unprotected.

Great. You can use the Eastwood after blast. It protects with a zinc layer. I dont know though how long will the protection last.

Impressive. I like where your head is. The '69 dash is my favorite too.
I used the dustless blasting too and despite what I was told, it flashed by morning.
You wouldn't be in the Detroit area would you?

Nah, I'm in Mississippi. Was your car outside or in a garage? It's been over a week and mine has no sign of flash rust at all. We died it as quickly as possible . The guy that did it told me they put a chemical in the water caller HoldTight 102. Apparently it's pretty expensive. He said that some dustless blasters will say they are using it but really aren't. It will flash very quickly without it.
