A painting contractor friend of ours uses the wet sandblasting method to remove paint on old houses. It works great, as it doesn't pit the wood near as bad as it would if he used it dry.
Don't know the name/manufacturer of his sandblaster, but we have seen it in action.
We sandblasted our firewall before we sprayed on the POR 15 Silver (Use Your Respirator!!!!!). It didn't warp anything, but it didn't really matter anyway, as we covered it with our 2 piece aluminum firewall.
The body and frame were beadblasted.
Hope that answers some questions.
