so i don't know about all of you, but just because i'm not the most well off person, doesent mean that i want to cut corners when building my dream car. when i started to build my wagon i wanted to get it sandblasted, but i did not have 1,300 just sitting around. i already had my 26 gallon compressor. so i went to sears and they have a sandblasting kit, for 65.00. i bought the kit but the "hopper" as they call it was just a thin plastic container that holds the sand or meida, whatever you want to use. you can just buy the gun for 35.00 and that is all you need. you can buy the produvt to blast you're car at harbor freight or any other majoy paint store. or if you are on a real budget, you can go take sand from the beach. they both work, just wanted to pas on the info.
