Hi,I am looking to remove rust from automotive parts using media blasting. This is basically a medium sized job, blasting the parts from 2 engines. I am looking to do this safely, particularly in regard to inhaling toxic dust and mist. I'd like to do this outside with small portable blaster. What do you recommend for media and respiratory protection?

Do you have a cabinet to blast the parts in?

I want to avoid the cost of the cabinet and dust collector. That is why I am planning to work outside with the small portable blaster.
