The next step that Alex has going here is a little spot blaster with a vacuum cleaner attached. In the earlier clip where we took the little hand held sand blaster and blow in there everything was all cut open and it would could not have got this big bulky blaster in there. If we use that little one again we would end up pouring a bunch of media in the car in the holes there and would collect in the bottom and hold moisture. It would cause the thing to rust again so we use this media blaster with the vacuum attachment. So he is blasting off the little bit of slag from the welding that he did, the little bit of burnt primer that was hurt by his welding there. Even the primer is a well groom primer it is best to get any that is burnt that we can off of there. He would do a pretty careful job getting this clean and he would blow this off. To get any dust that is left behind from the media blaster and then another coat of the primer. Putting raw steel in there is not a good idea, keeping everything clean and prime is good idea.
