Hi All

I have an old 86 single cab raider. The load bin is starting to get a bit rusty underneath the old bakkie back liner.
Is there any recommendation on how to get this stuff off. I tried wire wheel and flapdisk on the angle grinder - not working great.

Thinking sandblasting might be better. Any ideas of costs or recommendations?
Thanks in advance

I have read on one of the Toyota Face book pages that dry ice helps to remove the old rubbing linings, maybe google this and see.

Otherwise a blow lamp and scraper and after that maybe xylene or even laquer thinners to remove the rest. Either way it's going to be a schlep. Sandblasting won't work. Maybe ask the guys that do rubberising, they must have come across this problem before and have an easier method of removal.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
