    I love Harbor Freight's cheap Russian aluminum oxide, Folks!

    Ain't no way a frame would fit in my cabinet though...

    "Play sand" is cheap, and blends well into a gravel parking lot.

    That would make a mess in my alley, Larry and D.A.!

    (I treat it like a 'Historical' district.)

    Find a mobile dustless blast guy and have him hit it with 70/100. Then you can have it epoxy primed & painted (I'd recommend a single stage for a frame) or have it powder coated. I like both options, and I find that a good coat of epoxy, followed by enough dry time, and any PPG/Dupont/etc base coat and some urethane clear lays down like glass. I've done dozens and dozens of frames, and probably thousands of tanks and fenders. I do this for a living :-)

    One of the criteria I look for when selecting a blaster is, do they own/ride bikes themselves.
    These people usually know the extra effort needed to make a good surface prep.
    Ask other people about their experiences, etc.

    Is the original poster trying to duplicate the factory finish on a wishbone?
