I have seen dry ice blasting on American Resotration, and yes, they used it to remove paint off a metal item. It seemed to work well. The question that comes to my mind is what kind of clean up is expected. I understand the dry ice will melt to water and drain or evaporate, but what about the rust, dirt, grime, bondo and paint that comes off the project? What happens to that? Also, I bet it is very similar to either Soda Blasting or Media Blasting with regards to needing priming & sealing the bare metal immediately afterwards in order to prevent new rust from materializing.
