    Media Blasting

    Hey guys, I need some leads on media blasting, somewhere north of Columbia would be nice-- I'm in Seneca. I want to get the engine compartment done on my
    dad's old '55 Chevy. It's got several layers of paint on it that I want to get off. There isn't much rust to speak of.

    The plan is to paint the engine compartment, install LS engine, shut the hood and leave the exterior as is. The cab of the car was originally the Chevrolet Red which looks
    very orange to most people.

    Who do I need to call?

    Most of the guys I know use Brezeale Sandblasting in Easley. I have never had them blast anything, but these guys keep going back. Jeeps, model A's, trailers, farm equipment. They have taken it all over there.

    are you requesting media blasting as opposed to sand blasting or would a place that sandblasts work?

    Brooks, I'm using the term "media" because you hear many people say that "sand" blasting gets the metal too hot, it's too abrasive etc. I want to get paint off and down to metal that I can prime and paint new. I've heard soda blasting, pecan shell blasting and all that.

    I know what I want to end up with.....how I get there is for the experts to tell me.

    The place over by my house was suppose to be good but I think they let the 15 year old do my quad cab and turned the roof into the ocean.
