Does anyone know of a cheap place to get my buggy and suspension parts sandblasted?

Got my buggy and stuff done thru Stripco at milperra,they have sandblasting facilities and powdercoating in the one building,saves you transporting to another place after blasting etc.But if your after a place that maybe closer is in brookvale,see Dean from brookvale powdercoating,he doesnt do blasting but there is a bloke in the next street that does.Ive had a few things done by Dean and he does good work tell him I sent you and he'll look after you.

Cool, thanks Ron.

I will be painting with a really tough urethane paint and can't face the prospect of stripping all the factory blue paint from the steel. Hoping to get it blasted cheaply and then I can just paint it straight on, no need to use the etching primer stuff.

Cheers Ron, that's what I'll be doing. I'm not powdercoating, however, just painting it:

The stuff looks REALLY good, I hope it stands up to the beating a buggy can take. *Apparently* it can survive quite some time in a sandblasting machine without taking off the paint...
