Re: Sandblasting firm for a bulkhead?

I had everything on my truck blasted before I rebuilt it 10yrs ago. I asked the fellow doing it and he wasn’t worried about the aluminum. He used garnet and just lowered the pressure. Nothing warped. This was a company in Chemanis that does oil rigs and giant things.
