Just curious if anyone sandblasts small parts? I am considering picking up a small sandblaster from harbor freight, its about $30, and blasting small parts with walnut shells. By small parts I mean control arms, etc. Maybe my trunk? Any thoughts?

A must have tool. It will work great on those little parts. Make sure you paint them ASAP After blasting. The last item, you have to have a big enough air compressor to run the blaster.

Easier if we know where you're at. I know 2 places that can do a whole car on a rotisserie or just a few small parts. Both also Powder Coat. I did my fenders, door, hood, trunk lid, the whole car. Along with every piece of metal I could take off of it. Then had them powder coated. Including the trans bellhousing.

That looks nice! I think thats the way to go. Im in Charlotte NC. Theres got to be a place around here that does that. When im ready for paint thats what im going to do for sure. I wish I had a big enough garage now to do some small powder coating also.
