Default Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Then I disassemble the entire car. Many of the small pieces get media blasted ASAP. Some will get powder finished, many more will be painted.
The body, fenders, doors, etc. get sent out for plastic media blasting. Why?
Plastic will not warp any sheet metal surface and unlike acid dipping, it will not come back to haunt you years later.
Also, unlike acid dipping, heavy rust will not be removed with plastic beads. This is of no concern to me as I repair / replace and compromised sheet metal.
The frame will get sand blasted - quite aggressively.
