I had some parts plastic bead blasted but wasn't real happy with the results. It left some rust behind. I had the body shell sand blasted and couldn't be happier. It was the best $400.00 i spent so far. The only thing I have to complain about is the sand gets in EVERYTHING and is a pain in the ass to clean up. Just when I though I had it all out of the car more comes oozing out of a crack.

Hack said:I don't like the texture that sand blasting leaves. I think the particles are too big or too heavy (dense), so more work would be required to smooth out the texture.
