I just had my brake booster, hood hinges and latch done back in August by Steve Gregori at Brakeboosters.com and they looked great. Steve told me that sandblasting was the only way to get good results so I had them sandblasted and clean before I shipped them. It cut down on cost and turn around time. Call him and talk with him. He's a nice guy and will explain everything to you about the process and how to keep them looking good too.
