 I am in need of some soda blasting on my old Toyota. I contacted Soda Blast in Oilville, but they can't get to me until the end of November. It's a small job, and my attempts to remove the paint/clear coat have caused more damage than I'd prefer. There was a guy in Chesterfield that did this stuff, but I can't find his number anymore.

Bill, I did a quick search under "media blasting Chesterfield Va" and came up with a fairly long list. Didn't know who you were looking for, but you might give it a try and see if you can find the one you want.

Depending on the size of your parts, and what media you want to blast with,
Engelbert might be able to help you.

I've spoken with a couple of folks in Chesterfield who use a silica based media which they say is too aggressive. The soda blast method is shouldn't cause any damage. I'll do another search. Thanks for the replies.

Sounds like a good retirement employment opportunity to me!

No way, Justin. I've about got this retirement thing figured out, and don't want to screw it up by going back to working again.

I want to finish stripping the clearcoat from the roof of my old 4Runner. I've stripped everything I can, but the back of the top is a bit more detailed, and I keep gouging the fiberglass. Not a huge area, I spoke to a guy who uses a "wet" sand blast method, but he advised against it. His advice was to sand it, but where the clearcoat stuck, it STUCK! It's like sanding a mirror.

Here you go

Just keep sanding. Use a good wet sanding sheet, not the cheap stuff.
