Okay, I gave up with the rust remover/sand paper/wire brush/drill with
various attachments method of cleaning 12 years of crap of the
suspension struts and took one of them to get sand blasted. Yes I am
worried that it will get damaged but I spoke with the guy at length
and explained what I wanted done, and he has done other car parts,
Anyway, my question is what do you recommend for finishing the
suspension parts after sanblasting (comments from Vicarage cars would
be very appreciated)? Harold (the sand blaster) recommends powder
coating, one coat only, I don't think you can do more? He showed me
some examples and it looks very similar to the finish on springs?
I am going to call a company about galvanising the parts and then
having the power coating done, Harold believes this will be expensive
and they may not be able to mask off areas (e.g. the wheel bearings
and threads). Any experiences of galvanising parts?
Thanks and regards, Mike
