The past few weekends have been spent sandblasting parts of the M3A1 Scout Car. As to be expected, there is a fair amount of corrosion on all of the parts, which can’t be properly cleaned back with just an angle grinder and a cup brush. I mention sandblasting, but it’s actually a crushed glass media which we are using. It cuts quick but makes a mega mess, as to be expected, and covers you from head to toe in dust! Once blasted, the parts come up good as new and after a quick prime, to stop any flash rusting, they are ready to be further stripped down or repaired if required. Cheers to Noz for the use of his blasting kit!
