Wet blasted yesterday...thats a workout!


 I plan on doing the very same with my Chevelle donor floor before installing it, then going over the rest of the Chevelle (in stages) as I proceed with the resto.

Did you use the pressure washer attachment to do that?

I'll try and answer you both -
I'm pretty sure the 2 brackets that run fore-aft are simply stiffeners due to the acre of floor pan and just a (formerly)flimsy perimeter frame - there wasn't anything attached to them. I skimmed thru the 67 assy manual and didn't find any reference to them.

Blasting: friend of mine has a dustless blast trailer rig - the glass bead and water  in a pressure pot and it all comes out the same nozzle... there's a rust "inhibitor" in the mixture - you just have to get it dry and inside ( I ran a fan on it all night) and today I have to brush/blow off any collected dry puddles of glass bead that are EVERYWHERE! and I'll wipe it down w some paint shop degreaser and shoot some primer on it this weekend. I definitely feel the soreness today in my hands and legs...then again, as of today, I've never been this old before...

wet Blast:

Could this be done to the bottom of my car and firewall? the body is complete with the interior, glass in, doors on, and I am not going to paint the outside of my car, only fix issues here and there.......

This is quick and looks to be excellent quality...... Would it damage the glass? exterior paint if masked off.... ok?

it'd definitely tear up anything it aint supposed to touch... plus - just the collateral damage of residual glass bead in any linkage, rubber seals, window crank/felts... you name it... it would definitely be a pain in the ass unless you do an extraordinarily bulletproof job of double sealing etc... and that would get costly I would think...serious psi pushing that glass so it WILL get in...

 There is an attachment that can be added to a pressure washer (if you have a pressure washer) to turn it into a wet media blaster. My local rental shop has them to rent ($15.00/day. (Media extra; parts store)), or you can purchase one (Harbour Freight?) Works like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfA-IkaMRGE  

                                                     http://www.powereagleusa.com/product/wet-sandblast-kit/

The Eastwood Company sells a solution to use after media blasting has been done to prevent rust flashing (After Blast: http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-afterblast.html)

I also plan on using this method for cleaning up the frame for the Chevelle and future work on the Biscayne.

A thing of beauty! Really too bad you have to put it under the car.
