    Vapour blasting leaves some good result, why that over sand blasting? I know vapour leaves a generally better surface finish, is that why?

    Ceramic dust does not eat into stuff like sand does and the sand leaves a sh!Te finish along with not being able to get into all the cracks and things.
    There is a few companies out there that rip people off and don't use the ceramic dust as it's an expensive powder compared to others and things start to rust over time and the general finish is rubbish if using sand or another product.

    Fair enough!

    Just thought for none visible parts such as hubs, might be cheaper.

    Its my mate that has the vapour blaster so im not too fussed to be honest, Plus it also helps things the ball joints , Nuts and bolts fit perfectly rather than trying to push them into rust.

    I have a massive box of 182 parts so will post up the results at some point

    It just makes sense to do it when I have the option.
    I would be silly not to do it and it lasts a long long time.

    Those parts all look so good! That's a great list of maintenance you're going through with there.
