I used walnut shell as the media for blasting the flaking paint from my CB450 engine; less aggressive than sand, especially on the delicate cooling fins. We didn't have access to soda blasting at the time. The down side of walnut shell is it is too coarse to get down between the closer fins, so soda may be a better choice.

I used mag wheel cleaner to finish off, followed by polish soaked packing called Never-Dull (sp?). Of course, for those areas that called for a higher polish, I used a Dremel polishing wheel at a fairly low speed.
