    A friend asked me to restore his minute mount 1.I want to have the plow sandblasted and I am going to paint it myself.What is a fair price to charge him to do it when sandblasting alone will cost $400?

    Sandblasting DD power coat is a bear. When it sticks it sticks GOOD and is very durable, removal by sandblasting does not always work. It takes grinders and sanding disc's to do a good job.

    Are you tightening up pivot holes and replacing hardware?

    I think you need to locate a different company to do your sandblasting! I had 3 plows sandbalsted and powdercoated for 250.00 dollars per plow. That included all the brackets as well.
