If its your first car the amount of disassembly may be too much for you to blast it. You need to realize that sand or media gets EVERYWHERE. speedo, tac heat and defrost vents window regulators, etc.....will have to come out or sand will ruin them and they'll still have to come out AND be replaced. what you'll end up with is an empty metal shell, then its ready for blasting regardless if its a DIY or pro doing the blasting. floor pans that are getting replaced do not need blasting first. and there are much easier ways and better ways to get old paint off than blasting too. So do yourself a favor and forget about blasting unless you have a lot of experience at it and have all the equipment and a place to make the biggest mess you've ever seen. you cant just do it in your back yard.
