I would never sand blast again!

The stuff gets everywhere, they won't do your car if your panels are soft and you'll be finding sand in every nook, cranny, orifice.

If you have found a cheap soda blaster.......take it!!!

Never soda blast if you plan on painting the metal afterwards. I agree with fjwb, do a search here at OH, looking especially for the comments of the user 'streetneat'.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience..

Look for restorer streetneat's comments here, as well as the comments on rust removal.
