Hey Guys just confirmed with $300 is a go for 10 cars. If you could all please call him at (905) 201-1199 to arrange for a deposit. Once he has all 10 then he can start with booking the appointments for the service.

Please update when you've made your deposits

I haven't seen an reply in this thread for awhile. The group buy I guess is not happening anymore? Anyone know?

I don't want to wait too much longer to get this done. I may just get it done myself but I would like to know if anyone has recently got walnut blasting at paradigm auto since the new ownership and how was their experience?

+1 not sure whats happening but I also do not want to put this off any longer and may just get it done solo as well. Would love to hear some shop recommendations in the GTA that wont charge an arm and a leg to have the intake valves cleaned.

I could not wait any longer as well. I ended up getting mine done by Al's Motorrad in Mississauga. The owner is Al Statkevicius. Great guy, knows his stuff. He works out of his own garage. He charges $360 for walnut blasting. You can reach him at 416-451-4006. Call or Text.

Might sound dumb but I have read that it is best to also have the valve cover gaskets replaced at the same time, so did your price include that as well?

No it does not. You would have to reach out to him on a price for that.

Looking for recommendations as well for walnut blasting since this group buy looks to be dead.

I know flipmode mentioned Al's Motorrad.

Any other suggestions?

There's a guy in Whitby who does it out of his home, but good work.

If interested I can try to ask him for details.

Hi Guys, Ali sent me this thread. Based in Whitby. DM me if interested in Walnut blasting. Admin remove if inappropriate.

Recent n54 done. Before:

After:

Results are typical of what I'm getting (before) and how they look when completed... Would consider group buy or individual.

Another before:

Another after:

Those last remaining walnut shells are blown away before being put back together...

Any suggestions on someone in London that does it? Otherwise I'd be fine driving to Toronto to have it done, just looking to save myself the drive.
