Soda blast or ?
#1
Been thinking about totally stripping the car and doing it right. Anyone ever had their car soda blasted or dry ice blasted?
I'm still getting used to welding but , man!, there are some good instructional videos and resources here!
I'm haveing trouble deciding how far I want to go to finish this 20 year project!
Gets overwhelming sometimes!

I had my daughter 77 stang soda blasted. They did a great job. Will get some pics of it tomorrow when I go over to the shop. The price wasn't that bad. Just make sure you pressure wash it good when ypu get it back.

Well here was mine in metal form, the thing about taking one all the way to the metal is there will be no surprises later, you will know what you have good or bad.
