I am starting a new project and would like to have it blasted with plastic media before I begin. I got an estimate from a local place (Hot Rods & Custom Stuff) and was a little shocked. $2500-3000. The car: 67 coupe with what appears to be original paint an some surface rust. No obvious Bondo or other repairs. Very little cancer (bottom corner of one door). The scenario: I bring them a gutted shell with doors, hood, fenders and trunklid removed. No suspension, glass, gastank or anything. Body on cart. What's included with the price: Remove paint from all surfaces (including the removed doors, fenders and trunk, no hood) and primer. Is this out of line? Does anybody know of another place that does plastic media blasting in the San Diego (or southern CA) area? I really don't want to strip paint myself again (twice is enough) but my time is cheap compared to $135/hr to strip and $95/hr to prime. Come to think of it, how many hours would it take? Let's say it took 10 hrs to blast and 3 to paint that's only $1365. Could they possibly put 20+ hrs into this?
