      back to business
      dustless blasting (Sharkblast)


      frame on stands


      and blasting commences




      dustless may be a bit misleading


      naked frame, oh la laedited




      naked arms


      pretty slick set up.edited it took about 3 hours, 2 hours of actual blasting.edited $300 minimum and that's what he charged me.edited By comparison, the closest blaster to me is Arlington and at least an hour away.edited - I presume it'd take 2 hours there too, at $90/hr.edited So I paid an extra $120 to save myself 4 hours....edited



      the dust wasn't bad, in all reality, but if you're doing this in an HOA - you'll have to wait for warm enough weather so that the media doesn't freeze, the sand or coal slag has some moisture in it, then it clumps - so he couldn't use water to suppress the dust....edited

      and here's this - I'll use him again when I do the Buick wagon to blast the body; and likely the Spider as well, for sure the 50 Buick.edited The frames on those cars will all get (probably) get powder coated.edited To have the frame blasted and powder coated is $500.editededited

      And for completeness, I'm using KBS coating on this frame.edited It's $90-100 for materials plus a $10 Harbor freight gunedited- so I do save a bit in money.... although I don't really save in time because the $500 place is 5 miles from me (so like an hour in Seattle traffic - I kid, sort of)

                I forgot if you're painting it or powder coating it. How soon can you get it primed? I know you know the sooner the better.

                  When they use the water with the blast, there is an anti rust agent in the water. Also, when they are done they rinse it off with that water. As long as it stays dry after that you will be fine.

                      they can't use water when it's freezing.... thus dry shot, and bonus is I don't have to coat it until I'm ready to paint because I live where humidity is running about 30% right now.... I actually have to make it more humid before I shoot the KBS

                          Surprised you missed any? .
                          We always grab the welder with the body overhead doing missed spots as we lay it on.. We look. But still miss some spots.

                            not at all, I knew I'd be turning it over again, so I left some spots for easier access

                              because it's never a simple question with you. You state as 'evidence' that some advertisement somewhere said something. wow, such research. it's the foundation of why I dislike you.

                              I don't respect you or even think you're worthy of an answer - you produce nothing, you've done nothing, and you continue to be nothing. Oh you talk a good game, but frankly I don't believe you're anything but a catfish. Since it appears Bangshift wants to be Pirate or Yellowbullet lite, it's theirs to do by allowing people like you to remain here.

                              and since when do I owe you anything you snivelling rat? what I post, when I post is none of your concern, even when I remove my posts.... it's none of your damn business.

                              so now you've got the ball - post something worthy or go the hell away. I owe you nothing.

                              That is your opinion. SIR.
                              but if I may.
                              Did you loose your lic. to practice law. as you have a bunch of free time.
                              You may THINK I produce nothing, but then again you don't know who I am or what I do. but you ASSUME. and we all know what happens when you assume.
                              but then again ,it not shocking a lawyer would have hate for those on the front lines.
                              good day.
