Cj2A needs chasis undercarrieage sandblasting

Im located in Long Beach Ca. Any one know where I can take my CJ2A to get the undercarriege sandblasted localiy that wont cost me an arm and a leg. I called a local shop and they wanted my drivetrain off which I dont wanf fo do because it would be too much work for me. Anyone has an idea or any tips? I would like to get the undercarriege rhinoed so it could last 60 more years. I do not care about the front fenders being sandblasted because i picked up a set that I restoring outside the Willys. It also comes with a PTO Ramsey whinch that also needs to be sandblasted the rest I think a body shop can handle. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Herbert

Sandblasting is a very destructive process and it will get into it anything such as seals and bearings and causing headaches later. It is much better to strip everything down and just sandblast the frame itself.

Thank you for your info. Of course that would br the right thing to do, remove tub and drive train from the frame to do this type of work but thuis will require me to do alot of work for the purpose of this jeep. Is there a way that the drive train can be cover u think?

Better to take the entire tub off the frame and have it Plastic Media blasted and not sand blasted.

Cost me a $150.00 to rid my Repli-tub of its entire cheap primer.
