Default Paint prep question

So I'm looking at tackling the paint prep on my (new to me) 1970 FJ.

It's going to be a PITA I know but has anyone tried one of these mobile Dustless glass/water services before?

I've never used a mobile service but Blast Tech in Denver did a great job on my rig.

I guess my concern is does the liquid get into nooks and crannies which could retain moisture or cause paint sticking issues?

I doubt it uses that much water that accumulation would be a concern unless you're planning on painting immediately after. It's a good question, though, how much they use and how long to wait.

Update!

So the man that runs the bidding recommended keeping the cost down by using a few different processes given the different body pieces and desire to NOT remove the tub from the frame.

With that said, he said to drop it off at the shop. The price range is 700-1k depending on how much I do to prep...
Sounds reasonable.
