View Full Version : Media Blasting

I have sent some body parts out to a media blaster and when I get them back I was wondering how I should clean them before applying the Picklex-20 rust converter?

Unless you think the blasting left some rust behind, I wouldn't think you'd need Picklex. But if you decide to use it, clean first with a wax and grease remover (http://www.autobodystore.com/ms8.htm).

I blow mine off, then use the wax and grease remover, just to get rid of the dust. If it's bare metal I use picklex regardless. I figure it is cheap insurance. I have had some pieces I have blasted which had very small almost microspocic rust in some of the profile, that's why I have been using the picklex. Ron
