Lightbulb Sand Blasting a 38 Chevy P/U



Ok GT,, it looks like you might be just the 1 here to answer ALL my questions,,LOL.. my 1st question is on sandblasting Yes or No.. I just bought a 1938 Chevy P/U.. its alittle rough in the rust department. No hole no cancer everything is there except bumpers..Do we use sand for sandblasting the old paint and rust and if so what grid? or should we use walnut shell? and what would the pressure be on both??

Walnut shells, Pressure about 100-120PSI. Its a little bit like painting, so if the pressure seems to high or too low then change the pressure. Walnut shells would be best since they are soft and wont damage the metal as much as it does to the paint.

I forgot to mention. Sand should be sprayed at 100-120, walnuts at around 70. Sorry, wasnt thinking straight.
