bead blasting

I'm restoring a 78 Bronco and doing it in a one car garage.... so I don't have the room to do the blasting or painting...... is there anyone in the lower michigan area that does bead blasting?? or have a booth at home?? or know a good shop?? Ill pay or possibly trade something for the work. I'm looking to get this done sometime in the next 3-4 weeks. I'm just starting on the body panel repairs and the truck is completely stripped other than the motor and tranny that I'm trying to sell. Thanks!!!

he lives over by grand rapids though, so it will probably be someplace close to there.

no ideas man. I never researched it, cause I've never had the money to go that far.

You can pick up a 90 lb blaster and some media for under 200 at harbor freight and do it yourself not too hard.

Yea. Guess' youd' have to do it in the driveway, but still cool.

I want one sometimes myself. I'd probably end up blasting everything I own all the time. =\

It is actually nice to set up a bunch of tarps and make a booth with a tarp for the floor as well. then you can reuse most of the blast material since it doesn't get contaminated and makes for an easy cleanup.

I actually made a sandblaster out of an old propane tank that i found. It only cost me about $50.00 to build after all the fittings. I use it on my 77 f250 all the time. I am blasting on piece at a time. I will eventually be doing the frame too. I have a huge garage but i still move it into the driveway cuz that stuff makes a huge mess.
