He shouldn't sand blast it but walnut or soda blasting is fine. On hoods and decklids I'd rather do it myself manually with sand paper and a mudhog/ buffer/ aggresive da. Blasting body panels is a skill that not all blasters have. When you get your car blasted you have to be willing to pay more for a reputable blaster who specializes in hot rods. Take it joe shmoe's and you might get a bunch of warpage.
