Blasting recommendations please

I have my Blazer tub prepped for blasting. Any guys in the Piedmont region of NC (the closer to Concord, the better) come with high recommendations?

Thanks for your help.

I'm from Arizona and going with dustless blasting, they're mobile so it'll be convenient to have them just do it at the house. I'm sure you can someone around you that does this

If you want to do Dustless, there is a guy on Charlotte Craigslist under Services thst does it and I am pretty sure he is based in Charlotte.

Re: Blasting recommendations please

I would do some research on dustless. I’ve heard that the media they use tool hardens the panels. You may want to look into a plastic media. There’s a local shop near me that claims it doesn’t raise the temp of the metal nor tool hardens it when blasting.

Re: Blasting recommendations please

Since I needed to get the body in epoxy primer immediately after blasting, I found a shop near by that will do the blasting and coordinate with the painters schedule to get it done.

If I were going to be doing the priming, the mobile blasting would be the way to go.

Thanks for your help!
