Thanks for the comments guys.
The parts were all ran through a glass bead blaster. I had access to a shop where I could go in after work, during their second shift, and use it until they closed at midnight if I wanted. I was even able to turn my own drums. I did the rotors too but one was out of spec so I just bought two new ones. Just about every part on my Jeep has been ran through that blaster, from the foot controls to the battery tray. I really don't know how you would do something like this without one. Wire wheel, clean and paint does work but would take forever. I know, I did that to the frame and alxes. The bead blaster makes it look like you are spray painting the parts with metal colored paint.
I would consider buying one but the space in my garage is already limited. Not to mention it would be a tool I would use a lot during the rebuild then be lucky to use it once a year after that. I would have to say around 10-12 hours were spent in the cabinet for all of the chassis and engine parts. That's about 90% of everything. I still have to do the seat risors and a coupe things like that but nothing like all of the frame/chassis parts.
I guess I should start looking for someone that can do my body for me if I decide to fix it. Anyone know how much it should cost to get a tub media blasted?
