I have been getting glass bead and other specialty abrasives for my cabinet from
TP.  A friend of mine has family out that way and buys us a supply, sometimes at
a sale, when he's out to visit.  I have had a terrible time finding decent
prices and choices in Connecticut.  I can get sand and black beauty from the
local construction supply store, though.  I, too, have an air supplied
respirator that makes the sand safer to use, and I use it outdoors on dry days.
Frames, suspension parts, gas tanks, that sort of thing.  As far as body panels
go, I have used the services of a local blaster to do these.  For the time and
effort involved to take the proper care, and for how often I do it, it seems
better to pay him $60/hour.
