I had most of the parts blasted at a local blasters, quite a few smaller parts my mate said he'd do in work Very Happy cool keeps costs down!!  Rear arms etc hes done and various bolts brackets.  Beginning of the week, I gave him the only hub that I didnt get the local blasters to do as I was using it for mock up purposes, big brake setup.  The CV boot had split over it, basically it was in a really bad state.  He text me this morning moaning how bad it was and was struggling to get it all off, but had found a problem with the trackrod end part:





Cracked straight through, god only knows how long its been like that  Shocked   so thats something else to get from Bobs tomorrow  Laughing

if you want a tip on sandblasting parts to save you some cash is clean all the grease off first
as unless your using heavy grit (not best for car parts) it can slow the process as the grease
acts like a sponge and kills the stripping speed a lot
