Yes it is best to blast them right before, if you bring them blasted try to bring them soon after. If you bring them blasted we do give them another light blast before they go into the oven for the prebake. The prebake removes whatever moisture and oils are left on the part. We have not had an adhesion problem with the process we use, except if you want to get it back off, LOL, the blaster wont even take it off. The reason blasting them yourself saves you $$ is because a light blast is a whole lot easier and quicker then if you hadnt blasted them. Depending on the part the prebake cycle can take several hrs to remove the leftover oils that have soaked into the material.
If I get some time later I will post up some new pics, IDK if I ever posted compled engine pics on here or not but I will if I havent.
