There are so many small parts that need to be cleaned up that building a blasting cabinet was the only sensible solution. Honest.
With a quick and easy way to clean up parts and ensure paint would stick to them, we made lots of progress.
Even the brake callipers had the treatment. Since we’re fitting new stainless pistons and seals, the old ones can stay in place to protect the machined surfaced from garnet. A coat of 3M brake caliper paint and a bake in the oven should keep them looking good.
