[DML] Re: Sandblasting DeLorean frame - advice needed.



Hi John,

I had mine done a while ago. I found a local 'blaster' that used 
metal grit instead of sand. He said it wasn't overly easy to get off 
but he did it and it looked great. I then took the frame to a powder 
coaters that blew it out with a compressor then dipped it prior to 
powder coating in liquid (chromating i believe) to add further rust 
protection. I really stressed the importance of getting in 
everywhere with his powdercaoting gun. I was very pleased with the 
result.
I cant imagine warping been an issue at all with this type of 
procedure as you are only removing the epoxy coating and lightly 
abrasing the metal surface. There is no great heat involved.

Hope this helps, Nick - Sydney
