Car Blasting - For Serious Restoration Project

Im a big fan of Barry's Speed Shop/SMC Super Muscle Car ( show on TV. This is the only show i think so far that brought a rust bucket junk into life in few weeks. Chip Foose Overhaulin is good but it hasnt got much V8s in certain episodes.

The part that excites me the most were during the car blasting processes. Typlicaly they use sand for blasting prolly its cheaper and lately they use soda to blast the car. In just few hours, they'll strip the paint from the entire car rather than the conventional paint-stripping process which takes a week and only for easy access surfaces.

Check this out.

A few good links for you to check out :

So what about Malaysia? Do they have any? I googled and apparently there is a shop in Subang, CADBiz Sdn Bhd that does sandblasting for cars which will cost you RM3,500 for the whole car. Do take note that this is the process to blast only, not to fix the dent, bondos and lastly the expensive paint.

ECO-Friendly Blasting? Corn Cob? Recycled grass?

After knowing all these, its not good to know that Mr. Paint Stripper could only do the flat surfaces and easy to reach areas.

Are you seriousssss?
