Default bead blasting is my new best friend *pics*

My uncle bought a bead blaster not to long ago to help in his restoration of old war planes. And I just happen to have a 63/60 thats going to be getting a rebuild real soon so i snagged the housings off of it and brought it out to the farm. Here is how they turned out, Im extremely happy. They almost look fake or like I painted them with cheap silver paint but thats bare metal. The bloxs manifold got the same bead blasting thand hit with some high temp black. I think Ill do the same with the turbo housings.

bead blasting is so pimp! those look great, there's a guy on the neon boards who's offering to blast any part for 12 bucks apiece.

I use them at work all the time and from time to time i sneak some of my parts in there as it is awesome how quick you can turn a beat up 20 year old part into something brandnew in a few minutes.Those housings look great.

What era of planes? I've flown smaller planes before but that'd be awsome.

I've bead blasted all the compressor housings I've got laying around and it looks so much better w/a the years of crap cleaned off.
