Got chatting to a lad at work the other day, turns out he's got a vapour blasting business on the side, so I gave him the scabbiest old carb I could find to see what he could do with it.
These are the results, bear in mind this process won't replace eroded metal hence the pitting to the outside surface, but an impressive result all the same. I wanted to compare with what I get using my glass bead blaster, and what you get with vapour blasting is more of a satin finish as opposed to the matt obtained by dry blasting.
