Vapor/Hydro Blasting?
I'm rebuilding a 1978 XS400 motor and I'd like to get all the engine cases hydroblasted back to bare sandcast (newish) look. I haven't had much luck finding a place that handles this type of work semi-locally.

Anyone know of a place that does this this type of work and/or have had this work done? I'm willing to drive within a reasonable distance from Olympia to get to it.

Thanks in advance

Yes, a friend in Olympia just had vapor blasting done on a '69 Laverda, results looked fantastic. I'll have an answer for you this evening.

Here's the place, not in Olympia like I thought. The service got a very good recommendation by a meticulous motorcycle restorer.

Thanks! Oregon isn't too far away, so I might be able to get away with shipping the parts there.
