Soda Blasting

I just dropped off the battle wagon off at the soda blasters. Here are a few before photo's:

For obvious reasons, I cannot wait to see the after pics. Are they going to blast it as it sits in the photos or is anything else coming off?

Blasting as it sits. They are going to do it all minus the roof, rear x-member, tires & wheels.

Jafir,
Your truck was soda blasted and repainted in San Antonio. Your paint is peeling because they didn't neutralize the residual soda that embedded into the aluminum. After blasting it needs to be washed with soap & water, then etched with 50/50 vinegar and water or with self etching primer. I have done a ton of reading on this, I'll keep posting up on this project.

That explains a lot. Much of what I thought was Iraq coming out of the door handles is probably soda.

I had excellent luck with glass bead blasting my truck. Tell the blaster to dial the pressure WAY down lower than normal. They should be able to remove the paint without removing the alodine, which is what my blasters did.

Otherwise - that looks great! Can't wait to see what you will do with the truck!

So if the alodine is removed will that also cause issues with the paint not wanting to stay put? Are all of the alloy panels coated with it?

I'm curious about the same thing. I did find a place in town that does it. I'll have to call tomorrow.

I had my last project acorn blasted for $175 an hour and it took 3 hours. Soda might be more not sure. Not sure if this is in the same ballpark!

I just called the place in town. They charge $100 per hour, and you also pay $35 per bag of soda, which they said lasts about an hour... so I guess about $135 per hour.

Jafir,
Have you tried a power washer on your paint. It isn't very thick and the adhesion obviously isn't good. If you soda blast, it should be a pretty quick job. I have between 5 and 10 layers of paint, primer, etc....

I can't tell if the adhesion is practically greater on the alodined panel, but alodine is technically superior to unpassivated aluminum.
