Does your car need an ultimate car wash?

Turns out our elbows have less grease than we thought, so after about a day of trying to chemically strip our first gen Nova (where we were only able to attack one fender, miserably), we decided to pony up the dough for a media blasting.

We opted to go with a soda blast from Cal Blast in Upland, California for the strippage. Unlike other medias, the soda material is a softer way to remove paint as it doesn't heat up the metal. With all the paint reduced to microns, we were able to really see what we we're up against, and for some reason, it being in a tin coat makes us want to get to work on it ASAP. Look for a full article on the process in an upcoming issue of CHP.
