Bead Blasting

Postby KillerKowalski » Fri Apr 18, 2014 8:36 pm

A member on here had a JJ Lares bead blasted who referred me to a few guys that still do it. Now I need to get a call done and I lost that email. If anyone has a referral, I appreciate it.

I attached the Lares call if you recognize it.

It looks good until you touch it, then the oil in your hands turns it a pure flat black. Also the bead blasting isnt very deep therefore it goes back to smooth in the areas you handle the call alot.

All my calls are flat black unpolished already. I'm not doing it for the cosmetics. Thought it would at least stop the wear and tear some.

Wear and tear will not matter either way on acrylic. So that means you are good to go. No blast needed :thumbsup:
