Had mine done there a few years ago. no complaints but Leslie doesn't work there anymore. A guy named Kevin took over, I haven't done a walnut blast with him yet so I can't chime in on his work.

Last I talked to Kevin he asked me advice on pricing for blasting. Maybe if we can get a group deal going. I'm due for one as well.

Sorry I'm going to do it locally for 400$. GTA is to far for it being worth it for me.

Hey guys, so he's agreed to $345 each as a group of 6. Let me know your thoughts,valve cover gasket is priced separate if you need that replaced.

Their regular price was $325 just at the end of last year. Doesn't seem like he's cutting us a good deal considering the amount of people, and I'm sure we could get 10 guys on board.

Should you have valve cover gasket replaced same time when doing a walnut blast? or is it more of good preventative maintenance?
