you need to find media blasters in your area and go from there. Talk to restoration shops and other places that would have this work done and ask them what it cost to have a car done. find out who they use and then call them and get a quote. You will have to determine how much material it will take to blast a car(varies on how many layers of paint, type, body filler, ect...) , fuel for your blaster if gas/diesel powered, or electricity having compressor on all the time. You will find out prices vary dramatically between areas. You will have to base YOUR price on YOUR area. Other wise you might find out the hard way that 1)you don't have any work because you are too high or 2) you have TOO much work because you are too cheap. Either way, you will go broke in the long run. With that said, one place here in KC is @1000-1200 for a complete car inside and out on rotisserie. Another shop charges $70 an hour for how ever long it takes. Dont plan on getting rich blasting cars bodies. You warp ONE panel and you will have a mess to deal with from the customer!!!(AND any future customers)
