Thanks for the links, I know there are sandblasters here, it's more the issue of me not wanting to pay what they'll probably want -- knowing Santa Barbara prices.

I wonder what it costs? I got a Old Bandera that could use a good sandblasting.

the Naval Jelly I use as the Loctite name on it, I think they now own the brand

I'm not trying to highjack your thread but wanted to post pic's of my recent Brinkmann Cimarron rehab. Mine is not the deluxe version. I completed the rehab about 2 weeks ago. Had it sand blasted, it was as rusty as yours if not worse. I added a deflector plate, charcoal basket and replaced the wire shelf on front with a cedar shelf. For the paint I used high temp black then coated with high temp gloss. The inside looks like I painted it but that's just the seasoning oil. Oh yeah, I also used high temp felt (BGE style) to seal my doors.

I wish you the best in your rehab project, I had a lot of fun with mine. I really like the smoke flavor the offset. It also holds heat very well.

Sorry, I'm having issues with Flickr. I don't think I'm going to be able to post pic's from it. Much easier from Photobucket!

Here she is all done.


Felt gaskets



Deflector Plate


Charcoal Basket

OK. Thanks for getting me clear on the Locite name. Much appreciated.

That will take you forever to sandblast with a consumer grade sandblaster/air compressor. Not to mention that you need a proper respirator to sandblast safely. If I were you I would pay someone to blast it or get a couple of flap disks for my angle grinder and do it myself. Two good disks and an hour of your time should take care of it.

Looks great. What are the dimensions/gauge of that baffle? Did you make it?
And what kind of gasket is that on the lid?

Sandblaster wants $125 to hit the Cimmaron. Seems a little expensive.

way cheaper than buying a compressor that can deliver the constant CFM you'd need and a decent blaster, go for it and don't look back

It's Big Green Egg high temp felt, works really well so far.

I did find it on Craigslist, was down in Bellevue. She was in rough shape but I've got her going again. I appreciate the compliment!
