I have heard stories about glass bead blasting, I was wondering if walnut shell media would be better?

I've seen some impressive results with vapor blasting.  No one local to me does it that I know of but some of the carbs done with it look pristine.

I'd be interested to see how soda blasting would work and how easy or difficult it would be for clean up?

Do you mean Dry Ice blasting?
The glass is not half full, it was engineered with a 2X safety factor.

Vapour blasting is also known as wet blasting I think. I had my rear caliper wet blasted by one of our group members recently and it came up beautifully. I left it the natural colour and then clear coated it, will find a couple of photos and put them here  :good:
