Default Sandblasting?

I'm looking for someone or a place where I can take my XXR's to get sandblasted.

Does anybody local to the Baltimore area have a sandblaster that is big enough for wheels?

May also get them powdercoated shortly after.

Please let me know!

Thanks,
TJ

[helpful madcatz post of the week]

call the powdercoat shop you want to use....they sometimes partner with blasting shops, or can do it inhouse.

If they powdercoat... They probably also strip wheels!

I'm just looking for someone who has their own sandblaster. Not looking to pay out of the ass just to strip them down.

I have 1 in my shed, it will fit wheels, just depends on the size, that and im 30 min south of DC.

Yes.. some people actually have thier own tools, and build their own parts.

But it takes a LONG time to blast wheels.

Your better off soaking them in brake fluid for a couple days, or using chemical stripper.

Im not saying that nobody has one. I am just saying that it is a difficult tool to have at home.

The wheels are 18x8.75 and I already sprayed them with aircraft paint remover.
