Blasting a 1965 Impala - need advice

I'm getting ready to start rebuilding a 1965 Impala. It needs to be blasted, it has some rust and the floor pan, trunk pan, quarter skin, outer wheel wells, etc. needs replaced. My question is should I cut out these pieces and us my home blaster or should I take the car someplace and have it all blasted and then bring it home to start rust repair? I have also considered renting an industrial blaster and doing it myself, but I'm no blasting expert. If I did it myself I would DA all the flat spots and only use the blaster areas that were hard to reach, and then blast the frame and other pieces that aren't subject to warp-age.
