BIG DOG said:Did he also mention that no major paint company will warranty their paint if the car was soda blasted?
The info that you got on it being the way to go is wrong ! There are alot of benifits to soda blasting as gocirino pointed out but there are some serious problems also !
And soda does not remove any rust.
Yes a soda blasted part will resist rust.This is what also makes the paint not stick to the part and there have been many cars with show quality (big money) paint on them that the paint started to peel off due to the soda .There are ways to neutralize the soda to make the paint stick but the fact is the paint companies still will not warranty the paint .
