Bead blasting

Post by steve » Sun Nov 11, 2012 10:52 pm

Hi guys , I'm wanting the downpipes from my 1999 R1 cleaned up , I was hoping to get them bead blasted or something similar to clean them an make them look good for a streetfighter project I'm planning on finishing over the winter ,

Do any of you know of any company in aberdeen that could help me with this ?

Cheers in advance :2up

They're probably thin stainless.

You may get better results pickling them - http://www.google.co.uk/#q=pickling+pas ... 11&bih=817


Just be aware that pickling paste is nasty stuff, seriously strong acid which will f*ck you up on contact, and the fumes aren't nice either. Make sure you read the instructions and use PPE!!!!


Edit: Alternatively, bring em to me I'll do them for you. Think I have some pickling paste somewhere.
