Hi Justin,Hi Gavin,
Great restoration of a nice engine, just wondering what you used to blast the paint off and leave the filler underneath. Looking forward to seeing it run.
It was a painful and slow process of using one of those small pot blasters with garnet at about 80 to 90 psi and just keeping up a quick sweeping motion just trying to take off a layer at a time.
Garnet consumption was high as the efficiency was down but I wanted to preserve as much of the original patina as I could.. I did first try paint stripper but unfortunately paint stripper only worked so far, as they used a red oxide undercoat.
I tried about 3 types of stripper and none would budge it, so it had to be blasted..
