What is water blasting?
That is one I have not heard of.
Nevermind, I read up about it.
I don`t think it`s generally used for automotive applications although I could be wrong.
I think he would be fine with soda blasting.
When I called about getting something soda blasted the guy said it usually takes a lot more material than sandblasting.
They use specialized equipment, but I have heard good results with the HF blaster, it just took a lot of time and a lot of soda to do it.
The advantage to using soda is that when you wash the part for paint prep the soda is water soluable, so all of the soda gets washed away, whereas with sandblasting it`s hard to get all of the sand out of all the little nooks and crannies.
