I'm at the same stage with mine, and having met with a few paint & panel guys, each seems to have their own preference for a blaster.

I've settled on a painter, and he happens to use MK Blasting at Greenacre but others that came up were Austec (who "does most of the Pac cars") and Mr Klean. All quote similar prices.

MK also sprays zinc/epoxy afterwards (not all do, so be sure to check) and can powdercoat cross-members, steering and suspension components etc.

How much of the car were you thinking of doing?

That's a decent price - most places want between 3 and 4k for a complete car (inside, outside & underneath).
