CNKS, Not stiring the proverbial pot here but just adding my input. I have been sandblasting or having pro blasters do the job on some large scale projects for MANY years and I must be just plain lucky, if I take your sage advice to heart. RE: "Sand blasting sheet metal will warp it" I agree, sandblasting is not the operation to be taken on by the novice without some education and guidence. Hope I haven"t upset anyone, just adding my point of view.

I've heard it before from several people, it only takes one mistake--I'm not going to leave my sheet metal with anyone and I choose not to do sandblasting on sheet metal or assembled tractors myself. It is not worth the risk. I have taken larger parts to pro sandblasters, their large units actually use less sand than my small sandblaster, factor in the price of my sand, and it is faster and cheaper to let someone else do it, however I have no nearby sandblasters.

CNKS, I am with you 100% on not blasting assembled tractors or many other things completely assembled, that"s just asking for a long term PITA. In my area I am fortunate to have a PRO that knows his stuff and travels around 80 miles one way to my shop to do work that makes better finacial sense to me, price is reasonable for his experience and knowledge. Happy painting !

I have sand blasted some tractor panels with no warping, It was a small unit with not very high pressure.
