I'm a little dissapointed with the soda result. It is obviously a gentler process and does not remove much material so you will get a clean finish - not necessatily bright. Soda blasting is great on car panels and removing graffiti. It was relatively cheap but if you want a more smoother reflective satin style finish on alloy - I think hydro blasting (slurry) gives a better result. We have a local soda blast guy so I thought I would give him a go.

I've got a Hustler in my garage waiting for somebody to love it. prolly just a parts bike given how long it sat outside, however it is all there. I couldn't resist it, but reality has reared its ugly head

Your post is worthless without a picture to validate the claim of having a Hustler!!!

Or he could ship it to me and I'll look it over to verify his claim.

I'll try and get a photo of it soon and will email it to anyone that wants proof. I have a whole 75 bucks invested in it, so I'll not be paying for shipping to the frozen north.
