Jim, HF sells a 50 pound bag for $34 but I saw in the ad that it's an Armex product, made by Arm and Hammer. Looked up their website and they must have distributors in your area where you could get a better deal I'm sure.

OK guys I'm confused ,,,, I thought soda blasting required special equipment?! you mean you can use a garden variety sand blaster with 125 or so psi?

I think so Dave. It's just media basting after all, no reason it wouldn't work that I know of.

Jim,

It's baking soda. Buy it from a distributor. Cheap stuff, nothing special and biodegradable to boot!

They advise that you wash it by hand and not pressure wash. Soap and water or just water. It's a neutralizer, you can use it in your pool or hot tub to balance the pH, or take the paint off your MG!

Cheers,

Dave., you might need a larger nozzle on the sand blaster as the soda grain size is pretty large depending on the grade, other than that it's the same process as any other type of media blasting.

Dave,

Go here: [barebonesblasting.com]

and watch the video of him stripping an MGB. It's a pretty sizable nozzle.

Clearly an industrial blaster, the limitation is the size of the air compressor. My local tool rental place has big mobile compressors that are fairly priced, (I rented one for a weekend to jack-hammer a concrete slab. Not an exercise I can recommend though as I still have residual carpal tunnel trouble because of it.) If your tool rental also has media blasting equipment that would work with soda blasting as well and it would be about a one day job. The blaster would basically consist of a hopper (possibly, and I'd say preferably pressurized), a nozzle, and a protective suit. These should be fairly common.

Jim,

That's an even better idea! I completely forgot about the tool rental places. I'll definitely check that out when I get to that part.
