You said you soda blasted your wheels. So I though you may have done the tank too.
Seems to leave the parts nice and clean.
Good work taking them down.
Why are you striping the tank? Was it damaged or are you just doing a new color?

Please tell me you didnt take your guidance from that Toolbag on STG? Despite that I'd like to hear more about this soda blasting, however I can't bring myself to listen to that voice.

Why is he a toolbag? He seems alright to me whenever I've talked to him and their customer service has been great whenever I've ordered stuff.

Yeah you're right. Not fair to say that without explaining the entire story behind it all. They def used to have best customer service hands down until.....

Will amend my statement to say "I believe" or " based on my first hand information" or something like that "my opinion" is that he is a total toolbag and I cannot tolerate to listen to him at all, and unfortunately cannot in good conscience purchase from them anymore due to issues which I cannot divulge.

Therefore, I agree it is unfair to say that and expect members not to understand or agree unless they could possibly have the same knowledge. My apologies Tri. I stand corrected.
Would still like to hear what "soda blasting" is and the benefits of this action.
Thanks from TricoloreSF
