Been Around the Block
Thanks for the tip. My daughter was conscientious and made us both wear N95 masks.Be careful with the glass beads. When they hit, they shatter and create glass dust that can lacerate nasal and lung linings, inviting infection. I prefer aluminum oxide, although it doesn't leave as pretty a finish. Using glass, be sure to let the dust settle before opening the door, and vacuum up any leakage.
After I'm done with the aluminum I will swap out media to do the cast iron.
I am also planning on cleaning up the engine fully assembled. Decrease, pressure wash, and soda blast. First I need to make sure I seal it up completely.
Chrome front rim isn't too bad, but has some small rust spots. Going to soak it in CRC Evaporust then polish it on my buffing wheel. I'll probably clear coat it to prevent the small pits where the rust was removed from rusting again.
