Unfortunately it's not that close, a good 6.5 hours south. The good news is it's close to my dad's house, so if I can borrow a trailer to transport the bare shell, I might be able to work something out. I would also need to find a shop to clean and prime it before I pick it back up.

That will most likely be easier than finding a qualified blaster. The blaster can probably recommend someone.

You're gonna need a compressor, for the work you'll be doing, buy one now, prime that baby yourself and you're already ahead. I'll bet the cost to prime it'll be around $300 - $500, anyone can do that!

You and Patrick can go in halfsies.

I already have a nice 60 gallon compressor and all the air tool, paint guns etc. problem is if I get it blasted in Tampa, by the time I get it home it will already be rusting.

Soda lasting would I've it enough protection for a few days a least, but soda probably won't do much on the frame etc. Does a nice job on the body panels though.
