Sodablasting?

I'm thinking of repainting my '69 Thunderbird. How should I remove the current paint? I've been reading about sodablasting and it seems like the ideal method. What do you guys think?

Re: Sodablasting?

First of all, I love the '67 - '69 Thunderbirds. Best cars ever imho. Fast, comfortable and styled like a retro combination of spaceship and electric razor. I've had a '68 for 23 years now.

Why do you want to strip the paint? if the base is good, you can save time etc by leaving it as-is.
Also some seams in the body re filled with body lead, particularly in the C-pillar. Try not to disturb it. It's pretty soft, so I am not sure if soda blasting would do so.
