Johnny V saying hi. I am a vintage car fanatic who turns old, discarded bombs into works of art. I sell many of them but I also keep some to drive around town. I love the stares and looks of envy. All the hard work is worth it.
The biggest enemy in repairing vintage cars is rust, so I am a big believer in sandblasting. Sandblasting is truly a skill that must be learnt through trial and error. You need to follow safety procedures and perfect your technique so you don't have metal warpage. However, once you learn to sandblast, there is no cheaper, more effective way of creating a rust-free, clean surface for a paint job.
In this blog I share my techniques because I know many people are hesitant about learning new skills. I hope you learn something new and gain confidence. Best of luck.
