go to a top of the line restoration shop and ask them who they use and ask them how they do hoods and panels that warp. The blasters we use are very accustomed to what the customer wants. I recall a couple cars ago we didn't pay for the backsides to be blasted on some parts but they blasted the back of the fenders on the bottom where the brace is and there's usually rust there. I was impressed with their know how. What I'm not so sure about is how any blaster company epoxy primes. The place I'm thinking of has my confidence over the simple fact it feathers nice but I've also worked at a resto place that used a different blaster and the epoxy didn't feather nice and think they didn't blow it off good enough. Not sure what epoxy primer either uses. These are all worthy questions to ask.
