Just wondering if a pressure fed blaster is required or if a siphon fed blaster would work? What size compressor is required? I have 2.5 hp, 8 gallon, 125 cfm. Would that be sufficient?

Does chemical cleaner do the same but with more elbow grease?

Either blaster will work, the gravity feed gun is sufficient - the compressor you have will struggle with long-duration blasts but will also work with some patience.

Good luck!

Thanks! Just picked up a bigger compressor (26 gallon) and a pressure feed abrasive blaster. Also just ordered one of your kits! Looking forward to trying it all out when it warms up!

Kit is going out tomorrow. Thanks - just sent your tracking info.

26 gallon is a great all around compressor for the casual garage DIY'er, IMO.

That's a good price for a dealer, think it's ~$750 in CA.
