Hi all

I want to titivate and old van at work. Today I used our sandblasting kit (to remove paint and rust from the chassis of the old van) with some grit we found lying around which was size f220 (0.053 millimetres, 53 microns, 0.0021 inches). It sort of did a good job but not enough. I need to get a more harsh grit but don’t want to go OTT.

Any advice please?
