Ive been pulling off the trim all around the car. so far so good, no rust!!!
I broke down and bought a sandblaster. Its an Eastwood, made in China, but honestly it works pretty well.
If you don't mind me asking...what did the whole set up cost you?
Did you know before hand that the texture would come off if you sandblasted the A-pillow trim?
no problem, heres breakdown. BTW, i had a 10% coupon. Ive seen them do the 10% and free shipping, but I couldnt wait.

Then I bought 2x25lb bags of beaded glass. Medium grit. they were 20 bucks each i believe.
I dont recall there being any texture. It looked smooth to me. I've still got one that I haven't blasted, I can go look at it.
Ah yea, not too bad. You just use your own compressor? No special one needed?
Spray it with sem textureizer and paint over, cheers
I already had pretty good compressor, but the minimum requirements were 80-90 PSI @ 10CFM. Most moderate compressors can keep up with that. Of course you have to have a water separator for the line, and a shop vac to clear the dust inside. I already had all of that. They sell a add on vacuum for 140 bucks i think.
Took me about 4 hours to put together from start to finish, the instructions are crap, but I figured it out. So far im pretty happy with it.
Maybe mine were repainted previously? I dont see any texture....unless its really subtle.
If its textured, i learned something new today!
