I know this is an oldish thread, but I think I've found the easy way to do this!

The simple way seems to be Ice blasting, and I'm considering buying a machine especially if there is enough interest to get the same thing done, plus it's great for cleaning up other parts from engine to running gear.

I'll post some more info for you information.

Wow, a way of cleaning out old glue and stuff that doesn't involve gassing yourself with toxic fumes..... I think there may be a fair amount of call for that, Tom may want a piece of that. The Pit being cleaned out, resprayed inside and out, interesting

Hi Stuart,

I've seen these in action and they're amazing. Cryo detailing seems to be catching on but this far, cost has been an issue. The process is really impressive. 100% clean after an no toxic mess. Lots of info on underbody detailing out there. Would be really cool to have a small machine in the shop. Good luck with it!

Here is a video from Cyrodetail in the States, I think they are part of TuneRS Motorsports Florida.


This might not be the best video, but it does give an idea of how good it really is.

David, that's a great thread, but I don't believe chemicals are the way to go.
Ice blasting is a far better solution.
It's quicker and less harmful to the person carrying out the work.
