to blast or not to blast? (new ideas)

I have been throwing the idea whether or not to sand blast my jeep. Since my tub is only bad in a few areas like rockers and where the floor pan meets the tub, i need to effectivly undercoat the chasis and body. I was thinking of some duplicolor rust fix in some bad areas and just using a primer/sealer and rustoleum undercoat on the frame. I was thinking about using duplicolor bed armor on the tub and seam sealer where needed. What are your opinions? I know cut and welding are in the very near future but I would like to get as much as i can now. I am looking to do this this weekend with store bought material if I go this route.

If you do blast it don't sandblast it. Sandblasting warps sheetmetal very easily. Media blasting with plastic media or something like crushed walnut shells is what you'd want to use on a tub.
