I plan to

On another thread someone said it leaves a satin finish and is harder to polish. That's ok w/me as I prefer a satin finish on the inside. I've seen several youtube soda blasting videos and it seems easy enough. Harbor Freight has cheap equipment or you can rent. The other poster (can't remember who) said he went through a lot of the media so you may want to try for a more heavy duty media initially. To me, it beats the chemicals.

Take it easy & don't build up any heat. I've warped and pitted aluminum sheet with the perhaps somewhat coarser walnut shell granule blasting.

Thanks on the input,I plan on using the soda,which is the least aggressive of any of the medias.I will mask off around the windows,and blast the frames to clean them up.
As far as tongue,I will use walnut to blast it. Thanks,Dave

I think corn cob is less agressive than soda. It might not get enough material removal though.

If you want to try something no one else has tried use yellow corn cones. It should be slightly harder than corn cobs. Corn cones are very fine corn grits.
