    Can anyone recommend soneone to blast my 68 coupe in the north dallas area? I called the only shop i found and they quoted $2000 for a full rotisserie blast job. Is that on par with other places?

    Thanks!

    wow, i have been blasting cars for $800 on a rotisserie ...i need to up my price!
    media blasting will not remove tar ,under coat so you will have to scrape it your self. some shops will not take a car if it is under coated.

    I'm originally from North Dallas, but it's been years since I lived there. I cannot speak to media blasting, but I got better bids on body work in the outlying burbs. Same is true here in StL, where crossing a river can save you about $15 to 20 an hour.

    On the other hand, I ended up getting my body work done by the lowest bidder in West Fort Worth, which was too far away to supervise the project and hold the guy to timelines and standards of quality. So it is a balance.
