Anyone know what a good price for a good paint blasting? Ballpark? Got a quote of $1800 for total body and frame. Seems high.

Ask for references for work they have done on cars or ask around the car clubs about them. A good media blaster will know how to strip the paint without warping any of the metal and creating a tin can effect on the sheet metal. I think I paid about $1000 back in 2004 when I had mine done, and the guy was a very respected in the hot rod restoration world for his work. And it showed as my stuff turned out flawless. Plus he worked with me on the order in which pieces were finished so that I could paint and assemble things in the order needed to put the truck back together.
