My blasting guy charged me $5 per wheel-half and $15 per fender. That price works for me. There is no warping or anything. He uses a relatively fine aluminum oxide blast media, so the parts seem to be doing fine. I'll try to get them painted tomorrow if the weather is nice.
Wow, do you travel back to 1950 to have your stuff sand blasted at those prices?
That is awesome. I had a guy do my frame and it was $100, which I thought was pretty good. He charges $50 bucks an hour with a two hour minimum....he did it in 45 minutes. I hope to take my tub to him shortly and have it completely sandblasted. It will probably be another $100, but it would take me a long time to do it with my little sandblaster. I hadn't thought about it getting warped from sandblasting, however. Fortunately, my tub is so wrinkled I don't think he can do any damage.
Awesome job on the fenders as well! I have some similiar work to do on my fenders, so it was nice to watch your progress.
