Need a Stripper?

Hey all,
I run into alot of guys on these forums that are ruining their cars with sand blasting. I am a professional Soda Blaster. I also build hot rods. Please dont let someone talk you into sand blasting. It will destroy your panels. You will also spend months getting all of the sand out. If you need to strip a car please call me. I can get you going in the right direction. This issue needs to be a sticky.
Thanks
Scott

So why is sand blasting so bad anyway? I was going to break my sandblaster out this spring and strip it that way, the old DA and 60g isnt working so good, why is soda blasting so much better? Someone told me soda blasting doesnt remove all of the rust, is this true?

My knowlege of soda blasting is it will remove light rust but not heavy. On the body itself what the soda doesn't remove you will cut out any way, or will need to remove for a patch panel. If you are doing heavy steal like the underside of a car or frame utilize sand as you will not have to worry about warping and is much more cost effective than soda. Also take special care in preping for paint as the soda neutralizes the metal and will prevent flash rusting for a good period of time depending on temp and humidity.

I've restored a couple of older Porsches and found sand blasting to be a horrible method. Two reasons, 1. You will find sand coming out of nooks and crannies for years, and 2. You can overheat and distort the panels unless you are extremely careful. I've used both sand and soda, the soda was by far the better method. Just my humble opinion.
