Fair price for sand blasting? JimC and evilfij need help asap

We are trying to figure out if we are getting screwed.

Parts list:

Two new bulkheads (just land rover factory black primer)
Two new sets of T-pieces (just land rover factory black primer)
One set of D90 cappings (not rusty)
A ST light bar
A tire carrier
An ARB bumper
A couple other small parts (not much)

What is a fair price to blast all this? Any data points would be helpful.

Thanks,

Ron

I don't know if it will help, but to sand blast my dash and powser coat was $40. That was the Al dash I had made. The underside of my hood they wanted $100 though, without pc. Don't know if that helps.

Most of that stuff should be easy to remove I would guess around ~ $250 here in Colorado

The place I work with uses some type of 3M media not sand.

Example

I just dropped off a batch and I paid $100 for the following all down to white metal

1 series lift gate (plastic blasted)
1 Nas rear bumper (not rusty, full powder coat blasted and dipped in acid to clean inside)
1 Nas rear tire carrier (pretty rusty)
2 sets of radiator supports (rusty)
1 diesel air cleaner (factory powder coat)
1 2.5 gallon bucket of brackets

I'd really like to hear from Randy about this, since he's had a bunch of stuff done here in the area.

In all honesty, its a pick-up load of parts, so its not exactly a little bit.

Well, its hard to say because they estimate the time and cost based a lot on how intricate the parts are. I paid somewhere around $325-$350 a few years ago to have the following Sandblasted and Powdercoated.

110 Brushguard
NAS 110 External Roll Cage
110 Ladder
110 Interior Hoop
2x Bulkhead Vents

I paid about $600 a couple months ago to have the following Sandblasted and Powdercoated.

NAS 110 Roof Basket
Rear Step Bumper
Fuel Tank Skid Plate/Bracket
Anti-Roll Bar & Brackets
Rear Interior Cage Pieces
4x Jump Seat Hinges & Supports
Middle Seat Hinges & Latch Boxes
NAS 110 Battery Switch Guard
2x Front Seat Belt Mounting Brackets

the local folks I use charge around $125 per hour for blasting - they blasted my Series IIA 88" frame for $125 and the pan for my dune buggy (what was left of it) for $75

it only took them an hour to sand blast that chassis? Prices for this service seem all over the map. Our guy is charging time and materials, which works out to about 100/hour. I'm guessing some people charge very little because they can make a few bucks easily since they already have the equipment.

Ron, your pricing sounds fine (at least that $300 quote you mention) for the northeast. Just last week I checked around locally and it would have cost $250 just for a single tire carrier. He said they had to sandblast even if I had already wire wheeled them down to bare metal, so no savings there.

That was right about when I decided to paint mine instead

Now, for enough parts you could invest in a sand blaster or rent one, and maybe cut your costs down. I happen to know a guy with a sand blaster and did some parts this weekend. Nasty work but very effective.

20% gloss is almost a perfect match for the factory.

My powdercoater uses Cardinal brand paint and the code is BK08

The prices I quoted are from a large company here in Colorado that does blasting and acid dip.

terrible name, but they seemed like good guys. Extreme Powder Coating: http://www.extremepowdercoating.com/

Located over near Ft. Belvoir in Lorton near the big oil tanks off Terminal Rd.

besides the snorkel, they did my 5 bar ss rear door panel for around $80 I think.

Thanks, I'll check with them next time. I've already put a coat of primer on the stuff I sand blasted so it's not going to happen on this project, even if their pricing sounds a bit more reasonable.
