Hmmm. My husband does have a paint gun and he paints jets in the military. Do you think maybe taking it to someone to get it sand-blasted would work for the prep-work? Not sure what exactly is involved in getting paint/minimal rust off.

Today I don't have the inclination to do it myself so if I had to do it again, I would call one of those national paint shops like "Maako". I remember using Earl Shibe when I was in college but I think those shops are long gone.
Prices always depend on how much prep they need to do, such as rust removal etc.. I would think that if they didn't have to mask off a lot of areas and all they needed to do is to prep, prime, and spray, it should be fairly reasonable.
