I guess I'll post this here too since the body shop doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic. I'm trying to get some small parts cleaned up and ready for paint, but the wire wheel is getting old real fast. I was wondering what, other than sandblasing, do others do to strip parts prior to painting them? And what do machine shops use when hot tanking engines? They always come back ready to paint and that's the same levelof prep I would like to achive with these parts. Oh yeah, these are usually just cast parts, hubs, knuckles, adapter plates, some aluminum like the 208 case. . .
