Anybody got any recommendations in the DC area? Same for powdercoating.

I've heard that walnut shell blasting can be a bit more gentle on older steel. I know there was a place called American Stripping in Manassas that could do either kind of blasting - i'll see if I have contact info.

Yeah, if soda blasting will do the trick for surface rust and paint.

the guy has a large storage unit you can drop the parts of at. i did an entire lammy for about $250 i think. you don't have to worry about getting any grease/oil off either. i was satisfied w/ the work.
