Dozer blade restoration

Postby Shopp'n Cubs » Fri Jan 16, 2004 8:38 pm

So this blade I got has been outside for a while and is pretty rusted. What is the best way to attack it in preparation to a good paint job?

Guy,

No question about it... sandblasting. Preferably by someone else, at their site. You'll get a good cleanup to bare metal without health risks and you won't have any of the mess.

The next step, although you didn't ask... I have my sandblast guy do the primer too.

I think it saves money too.

Thanks George, would it be a good idea to get all the nuts/bolts broken free and replaced, then give the "disassembled" blade to a sand blast guy?

Yes, that would be an excellent plan. Make any repairs first. If you're like me, you'll find enough other stuff to take too to make a trailer load.
