Default Looking for body shop, paint shop suggestions for the 40

All-
So I'm currently doing a resto for my 40 Mud Link. I want to drum up some quotes for the body and paint work and I'm looking for some suggestions. This is what I'm planning to do:
1) Fix the large rust holes on the body
2) Soda blast the tub and accessories, get it expoxy primed
3) Get the frame sand blasted and powder coated
4) Re assemble and fix the small rust spots revealed with the blasting
5) Get it painted green

Any suggestions on shops for this process? Around Denver/Boulder would be nice as I know Marco is looking for someone too.

I should mention that I'll be doing all the welding work myself, so I just need ideas for the blasting/paint part.

I was going to post up the same question-

Looking for a recommendation for a fair priced paint shop.
Minimal rust (surface) and touch or 2 dent repair and paint.
Nothing fancy.

Ill do the stripping and sanding.

Thanks!

Default re: body work

Did some budgeting and found out I didn't have the $ for significant body work.
So I had an attitude adjustment: I now believe rust=character.

Default Affordable Body Shop

If anyone is looking I have used Coneja they are at 1471 Eaton St ( by Colfax) in Lakewood CO.
Roman Diaz does good work for great prices and will fix rust. His number is 720-838-7146. I have had him do a couple of cars and have been very happy with the final result and price. He would know me from Good Neighbor Garage.

I recently used Blast Tech in Englewood to have my FJ40 frame, tub, wheels, etc. blasted. Gary is the owner and is a great guy to work with. I shopped around and found his prices to be the best by a good margin. I know he has some connections for powder coating too. 303-806-9992
