This particular job was a VW bus which belongs to our company’s mechanic, Bryan at Cook’s Tire and Tune in Fullerton CA. He referred us to his guy Matt who does body work. This VW would normally get blasted by Matt’s media blaster, but when he saw it he said he didn’t want to touch this project.
Additionally, one of the big things to consider is that you only have about 1-3 days to get primer on the car after blasting because blasting steel surfaces with water will cause it to flash rust. Although we use an additive called hold tight 102 which prevents flash rust for up to 72 hours, the rust can still return quickly especially if you don’t store the car indoors after blasting.
Finally, it’s a loud process. Notice we use ear muffs all the time. So forgive me now if you call in and ask for a quote and I say, “What’s that you ask? I couldn’t hear you?” Oh well, maybe one day we will create a way to communicate by sending digital messages on our phones and computers.
