Sandblaster?

Looking to get my body sandblasted. When I had my frame done, I didn't have much luck finding a blaster in NM. Took it up to Colorado. Anybody on this forum know of a place that I could take my body in NM?

I think there are a few in Albuquerque but I'm not sure. Check with old Tony Kos down at Mild To Wild customs;
Mild to Wild Classics
Or maybe Classic Auto Restorations, or PJ's Classic Shop
If they don't do it they might know who does. You have to be careful, sandblasting bodypanels is nothing like sandblasting a frame. Make sure you find someone experiences with sandblasting body panels. I've heard way too many horror stories about panels being ruined by the blasting (its easy to build up too much heat and warp the heck out of them)
You might also check out soda blasting, or some other media (walnut shells). I've heard good things about soda blasting.

I'm pretty sure that Mild to Wild has the capability
Good luck
Bobby

There is a guy around.. Did some work on a couple Porsche restorations a friend of mine did here in Los Alamos. Does it at his shop, (Alb. I think) or will bring his shop to you..He did nice work.. No warpage at all, and cleaner than clean. If I remember the cost was fairly reasonable, considering. I'll try to get a number for you and let you know, but it MAY not be till tonight or tomorrow. The guy I know that used him takes the toys out on the weekends.

Albuquerque Monument blasted an EB frame down to bare metal for a buddy. They did a great job.

Thanks for the responses. I will definitely keep the warpage in mind. I have actually left my new quarter panels off for that reason (and to provide easier access underneath while blasting). Once the blasting is complete, I will put the new quarters on.


Thanks again.

I've heard of getting a full body wax, and some people getting "sugared", but wouldn't that hurt?


Actually I know the owner of Santa Fe Powder coating. He may be able to help.
