For anyone thats interested this is by far the easiest way to get a nice consistent finish on alloy parts
Before

After



anyone with a sandblasting cabinet can do this although glass beads or softer are highly recommended as the blasting substrate, Costs about $25 to do including fitting,

Looks like a decent result though.
I used paint stripper on mine and it turned out pretty good as well (luckily the metal was all good once I got rid of aout 3 layers of paint).

Bead blasting is essential for restoring.

I have put many motorcycles through the one i have a work, piece by piece!

Did you do this at your shop? If not, where did you get it done? How much did it cost?

WTF at this thread. Are you just pointing out the sandblasting finish and how good it looks? Is this part of a bike? Are you advertising something?[hr]
By the way, it's okay to tape parts up but make sure it's airtight because you don't want media left in there that isn't water soluble it is a huge hassle to clean. I leave the bolts in when necessary but screw them in far enough so you aren't blasting the thread, that can lead to all sorts of headaches later too. And tape them if need be.

Well like juxt, i was planning on just stripping the paint off and painting again. But this looks like it would produce a better result. But price will decide if i go ahead with blasting.

RE: Bead Blasting Results

It appears he is, in fact, pointing out the sandblasting finish and how good it looks. It also appears the part is indeed from a bike, probably the top triple clamp from an MC22 and, it does not appear as if there is any kind of advertising motive behind this offering, yes as incredible as it may seem, it appears that this post is nothing more than a generous offering of someones time and energy for the sole purpose of allowing the viewing audience access to a small tidbit of information which could possibly be of significant interest to numerous members who may take an interest in all things relating to restoration, maintenance or care of their machines. What a novel idea for this forum !
Nice work on the triple clamp Crutch

No need to be condescending there, I find this thread odd because beadblasting results have been posted before on numerous occasions on the previous forum, you might have missed that psidey because you haven't been on here long in retrospect. That is why I queried crutch, and he does own a business so he might well have been hinting at a new service he is offering.

I think it's just as simple as before/after photos, nothing sinister.


Chukitova you mentioned you've done this many times before. Do you recommend this as a good way of prepping the surface of something before painting / getting it powder coated?
