Default Sand blasting/ soda blasting ???

I am looking for someone that deals with sandblasting and soda blasting. I have a 53 willys truck that needs blasted. Also I have the cab that I am looking at getting soda blasted. I am looking locally but I thought maybe there would be someone on here that would be interested or knows someone that does a good job.

I'm also looking for someone on the board that does sandblasting locally. I have 4 - 15" steel wheels that I need blasted clean.

The prices were pretty good a few years back when I had the frame of the Flareside sand blasted.

I believe there was a member here, maybe shreddedbark, who did this.

If you have it done, report back with the results/price/review...

Southwest:

$20.00 per 15" Wheel sand blasted

$75.00 per 15" wheel sandblasted and powdercoated

All wheels are steel.

I found another private individual on CL who will blast them for $10.00 per wheel.

Consolidated Stripping in Plainwell, MI.

You can pay to use the equipment, or pay them to do it for you. Depending on the size of the cabinet, if you DIY it's $15-$25 an hour. I was able to get 4 wheels and an entire motorcycle frame done in a little over an hour.

The guys there are AWESOME too. It was hot as shit that day and one of the shop guys got a fan out and set it up next to me without even asking. They check on you every 15-20 minutes to make sure everything is going smooth and that you have even material.

I would HIGHLY recommend them, even if it's a bit of a drive.

I have dealt with this company as well and highly recommend using their services. They also sell really good media if you have your own blaster.

I visited Consolidated Stripping today. It's a bit of a dingy place but I didn't expect to see a spotless shop either. They were great to deal with and I would highly recommend them. I blasted 4-15" wheels and 1 oil pan. It took me about 2 hours and the cost was $30.

When I rolled in the truck thermometer was reading 100deg. And I expected the worst for heat in the shop area. Turns out the shop is air conditioned.

PS- Chief Brody, I give you much credit for finishing 4 wheels and 1 frame in a little over an hour. I was pushing as fast as I could to remove material and it still took me 2 hours.
