Dry ice blasting/Paint Wed, 06/5/13 11:58 PM (permalink)
Just curious what methods people have used to get their truck painted?

My truck is an old potato chip delivery van. The old logos are still on the truck, and the person I purchased the truck from just painted right over them with white house paint. The end result doesn't look too bad as long as you're about 100yards away, otherwise it looks pretty bad.

So far the best idea I've come up with is to get the old logos and paint blasted off (with dry ice) and then apply a good primer and paint. The plan would be to have a good paint job, but not a top auto body quality (spend approx. $800). Then I will apply large vinyl logos vs. a whole wrap (know a guy, and can get it for the cost of the material).

Has anyone used dry ice blasting to remove old logos and paint? Am I going overboard? Are my expectation unrealistic?

Thanks Joe
