What is the consensus on stripping the frame? Sandblasting, beadblasting, or the good ol' DA sander? What should I expect for a cost for the sandblasting if that is the route?
Thanks,
Eldon

I would agree... $100 doesn't sound unreasonable. When it comes that time, I will probably do that.

I had mine sandblasted and powder coated.
In hindsight I would have done more to the insides of the frame first. But it looks good.

When I get one, I think I am going to go with the sandblast/POR15 route. I am not looking to do a faithful restoration, but not a hotrod either. I want it to look good, but this will be a quasi-daily driver so it has to be tough and durable.
Thanks for the responses! Keep them coming!

I paid $100.00 to have mine done. WELL worth it! There is enough other areas on these projects to use up all our free time :).... unless you really enjoy sand blasting

Bruce you hit that one right. I sandblasted my own frame and spent the better part of a day doing it. I will gladly pay that guy 100.00 if i need another one done.
