question for any of you guys that have used the references in the thread.

I have 4 16" factory forged aluminum rims that I need to get blasted so I can either then get them repainted - or even better powder coated if I can find someone else local that does that reasonably.

for reference, I just picked up a set of 17" Forged Aluminum Alloy rims for $275 total - so if the price for blasting comes up too high I'll just wire brush, and orbital sand them with various grits, and have a friend respray them.

Let me know how that works for you. Last one I tried wouldn't work that great, even with a separator on my air line, it still wanted to clump up and not spray the best.

Let me know how one of those works for you. I'll need to blast the frame and body of my GTO and I'm wondering if it will be cheaper or worse to blast it myself.
I had one of those cheap gravity feed blasting guns, still have it. It has a rubber line that goes into the sand, bought two 90 lb. bags of medium or hard grit sandblasting sand from Theut products for like 7 bucks a bag. It took some time but it got the job done decently. However I'd want something that does better than a 15 dollar blasting gun.

I'll post up here how it works. Can't get out there and try it until tomorrow. I read a bunch of reviews on it and it said that one works better than most of its kind. So I am hopeful it actually does the job.

Hes done my dads '52 power wagon, 52 willies and a mil 3/4 ton trailer. He priced my tub at about $350 for my wrangler tub and I have a rino liner in it so it might be cheaper for you. Hes got a large building and I think he can fit a 20 ft trailer no problem.
I would recommend them. My dad is good friends with all the guys down there. It's also known as Springfield Metal Works. Eric is the guy you want to talk to.
