Default Sandblasting

Having my frame sandblasted and called to check on it today. Fellow told me that they go over it with a fine media after the initial stripping of paint. Any thoughts on this? Is it a two stage process, where the initial blast is rough and they smooth it over. Ed

Fellow said that to get it ready for powder coat they have to smooth it out. I’m nervous!

That should actually be a little better than just sandblasted. It’ll get you closer to where you need to be to prep and paint it.
