Default Local Sandblasting recommendations?

Howdy-
PaubloCruise got me thinking with his thread about Powder coaters in the area.

So this may be the winter I attack the rust on my 40 and have the cruiser painted next summer. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a local sandblaster? It would be ideal to do a few parts at a time, although I know bigger orders usually get a break in price.

I am thinking doors, fenders, hood, front bib, hardtop sides... all in stages.

Thanks!

I'm I think gonna be doing the same to the 40 this winter as well, thanks for the info on powdercoaters and blasting places. Drew, I got a front bib/bezel on the way for mine, so i can let you have that round bezel when you need it.

Ooooh! Marco, you're too good to me... let me know what you need to get for it or your favorite

What should I expect to pay for my hood, fenders, aprons, bib to be blasted? I have read everything on Mud from 80-200 bucks.

I just had 5 steel wheels lightly blasted here (roughed up the chrome to paint them). Very pleased with their work. $75 for the 5, and they were fast!

I'd definitely use them again for blasting. Also they had a pretty nice looking 40 series 3/4 tub that they had blasted. If it's one of you, it looks good!
