Not sure if this is the right forum or not, so mederators please do go easy on me.
I'm in NE Ohio, 44084. I'm trying to find someone to sandblast a Cub 100 for me, probably a S18 too, on separate occasions. Im will to pay of course. First on the list is the cub. I need to give it a good paint job and clean up real good. Also, paint help would be good. A source for the correct paint for the 100 would be helpful. I will probably liquid paint it, i think it will be easier to comtrol the paint that way. Ive used spray paint in the past but its difficult to control the paint and still get even coverage. Any help would be appreciated.

Look in the phone book for a commercial sand blaster.  When I had my 430 repainted, I had a local guy sand blast all of the sheet metal on my 430 and on a 318 for 150 dollars.  And that included HIM priming them as soon as he finished blasting the parts.  I supplied the primer at the recommendation of my painter.

Blasting not so common anymore with regulations hurting the process. My local stripper place bakes in an oven that curls off most paints and gunk and THEN blasts to clean up in a small room inside. They used to do lots of chemical stripping too, which was good, but kinda getting away from that now, again with EPA or whomever saving the environment.  I would think you are tearing it all down to pieces and not doint as big assmebly??  I have a big 48" cabinet of my own that I can put most parts into. When I blast, I usually also do some sanding right after and prime right away or it rusts fast.  As noted, best to check papers and might try asking at shops or body supply places for suggestions in your area.

I had a Cub Original done, the guy charged me $250 and I got it back bare, he wanted more to put it in primer.... I have done lots of my own blasting over the years and will again when I need something blasted, at that kind of prices

the only good thing about the guy that did that Original was that he called me in less than 24 hrs after I dropped it off (all in pieces) and it was done already

If you consider the time it takes and the mess it makes if u blast out in the open on your own ,a few hundred dollars isn't too bad. You would have to buy and lug sand bags around and you need a pretty big compressor to get a good job. Do you have to blast the entire tractor or just the frame and rims ?

Really just the parts I can't sand well.  The main chassis, rims, dash, grill, - I guess most of it actually. Same with the S18.
