If youve completely stripped the body and no further parts need to be removed fenders/doors lids off).

Consider that a shop will probably mount the body on a rotissere (3 or 4 hours) and take 3 to 5+ hours to blast.

8 - 10 hours total thus far at their shop rate is realistic, some may add cost of sand for specialty sands

Cleaning all loose sand from the body may take several hours or more (you dont want loose sand in your primer)

I'm not sure why you'ld want "acrylic primer". Anything acrylic can tend to oxidize and get porous and may 'draw' moisture in.

Epoxy Primer is the standard and it sheds water to a certain degree. This is important if the body gets left outside occasionally or is stored in a humid or damp enviroment. Epoxy primer is a sealer to a certain extent. Most shops use Epoxy primers.

Applying primer to body or shell without fenders 4-6 hours.

Fenders hood doors etc will take at least another 4.

Add cost of primer.
Remove from rotiserre two people one hour each.

20 hours at shop rate is ballpark in a quality shop Following proper precedures.
