  • blasting compound

    What is the "norm" for sand blasting chassis parts. Is black beauty still used or bead blasting compound?

  • #2
    I like Black Beauty, which is ground up coal clinkers.
    It leaves a nice surface for the paint to adhere to, and it's the fastest for removing paint and rust.
    I would never use silica sand again. I'd use glass beads for pistons, but would rarely blast pistons.

            I had my frame chemically stripped, when I picked it up I walked past it thinking who's nice new looking frame that is, It was mine! You could see the forming lines in the metal, epoxy primer and good for 100 years :-)

              Tractor supply sells coal slag in fine and medium. Works very well and cheap.

                Seeking Advice: Paint and Rust Issues
                by cpf240
                My father bought this '29 Special Coupe back in '78. It was in typical barn find condition. At that time, a restoration was started, but never finished. From '80 or so onward, it sat in two different garages, one in Santa Monica, and then sat outside under a tarp in Costa Mesa for several years. So, it has had some salt air exposure.

                My father didn't do the work himself, but my grandfather...

                28-early 29 floor board paint?
                by SeaSlugs
                So im getting a set of floor boards done - dovetailed wood plank style, all holes cut for AA with dual high pedals, holes drilled for support straps - went to old ace hardware for #12x3/4 screws with slotted head, but unsure of what to use to stain or paint them. I tested on the upper board near the pedals with black minwax polystain. Soaked in nicely to the end grain and will preserve it forever...

But in reading the Judging Standards book it makes referance to 2 paimt codes B- Black and R-Raven, now on doing some research on the internet i think R-Raven would be gloss black?????, so what is B-Black????? satin????

                Cad plating look alike
                by wrndln
                I have had a lot of parts white cad plated and they look nice, however there are a few fasteners, mostly bolts that I forgot to have cad plated or discovered later that they needed to be plated. Does anyone know of a spray paint finish that mimics white cad plating? I was thinking of something like a white or off-white spray paint and then scuff it lightly.

                Color Back Car Wax Black
                by Tom Wesenberg
                A few years ago I used to see a car wax advertised on TV, which claimed to restore the cars color. I'd like to try some black, and found some advertised on ebay by Turtle Wax. These waxes and polishes sure are expensive, so I'd like to hear if they work before I spend my money on them. Has anyone tried any of this wax, and did it help with scratches and faded paint?

                I know in the past I seen a post that had reference to a PPG or DuPont black paint that was very close to what the appearance of what Ford used. After much searching on the dark side I could not find it. Can someone Please post the brand and paint code number. Thanks Rod

                preservation
                by Jim Mason
                I have a late Tudor that I would like to knock down the surface rust on. I'm not going to restore it for some time, so I just need to knock the surface rust down, without removing the original finishes (what's left). I then need to prevent the rusts return. this process would be similar to the preservation of a low mileage original. what process is used on the low mileage cars for surface rust...

                Under Fender Care
                by Paul
                The season of salt is coming up. Before putting your A's away (I assume everyone has two), how do groom with stuck on tar, sand and the accasional paint chip under the fenders?

                I wash with soap and water then wipe down with karasen. The rag instantly becomes gritty and it feels like I am scratching the hell out of it. Next I use soap and water let it dry, touch up spots with Rust-Oleum...

                Correct black paint for gen., starter, oil pan, etc.?
                by smittykid
                The engine is out of my 29 Tudor being rebuilt by the folks out in Skokie, Il. While everything is off the engine-I figured now would be the time to paint the black stuff. Would Rustoleum gloss black be close? I'm not really going for a high point show car, but since everything is off and relatively easy to paint-I would like to get it close. Obviously, Rustoleum paint is readily available. ...
