Quote from: 94touring on July 29, 2014, 10:53:16 AMWouldn't it make more sense to use an acid etch primer, followed by epoxy sealer, rather than sand the entire body down? I've done minor soda blasting and it seemed to have a slightly rough surface that would allow for adhesion, but if there's doubt perhaps acid etch would be the way to go. In my case when I was done I used a metal prep on the airplane I was spraying to clean the surface. Never heard of vinegar.
Quote from: sparetimetoys on July 29, 2014, 10:10:28 AMThe vinegar wash down is one of the big drawbacks to the soda blast. that and I was told by an independant body guy after soda blasting you still need to sand the car so the paint has something to grip onto. He has seen nice paint jobs flake off in two years after soda blasting from failure to wash and prep.
