Body is at the Blaster

I stopped in at Rainbow today and heard from Mike that he had completed all of the metal rehabilitation on the body and it had been trailered over to the blasting company.

They will do two kinds of blasting:
- soda blasting: gentler particles used on outside bodywork to avoid rippling the metal
- sand blasting: coarser particles used on surface rust and nooks and crannies deep inside the engine compartment.

I don't know how long it will take, but they had to wait for an available work window to open up before taking it over so I can't see it being more than a few days.  Then they'll bring it back and start the bodywork and painting processes.
