I originally started using this for my aluminum motorcycle parts but when my boss saw a 3.2 intake he asked me to send out some pieces from the shop. We just got back two 67S sand cast aluminum cases. They aren't painted but they almost look that way. The vapor blast is a pressurized wet mixture of micro glass bead, water and soap. Done in a big tank. It polishes the metal vs leaving a rough finish like regular glass bead. It's also safe for internal engine areas. No residue. The guy I send the parts to is $60/hour and the exterior of the engine case took 2.5 hours. Intakes were 1 hour for the pair. My 40 year old motorcycle parts look like new. (Except for bigger scratches).
