i completely agree with you and you nailed it on the head with the guy making some spare change out in his garage after supper. I guess i would be more than happy doing small part blasting and coating on valve covers, headers, and random suspension parts up to stuff like hoods or even a door panel with the soda blaster. i know around here you can't get a set of rims blasted and powder coated for under 350$ and i believe i could do that in a night with well under $150 invested.
what do you think about those media's to blast?
i guess eastwoods little dual blaster video made me think that that little unit would get me into to the realms of full cars, but i'd be fine with a fender here or there.
haha, still think my first gen rx7 wouldn't take that long, haha
