When I was doing my panel I ask a company about doing it in plastic and they wanted BIG bucks. I was sick at the time and basically had only part of one side to go so I took it to them just to see what it would do. I ask the guy to also hit the inside where I would be painting. They later called and told me it was ready and I owed them $545. This was around 2012. I took a good friend with me to talk to the OWNER of the place and walked out with a bill of $250....more like it.

Since that time I have a 5 gal bucket of the plastic just like what they used and saving it for something sensitive. Most everything I have needs fine sand blasting. I will have to find it but I do promise you one thing.....if you have any rust what so ever plastic will NOT take it off. Just paint.

just fyi f rom my perspective.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Sounds pretty much like what I heard. The guys I talked to wanted a really low impact on the metal (a couple had nightmare stories of blasters wrecking body parts) and didn't mind coming back and dealing with light rust on their own. I am having to do the same even after wire brushing the garbage latex off.
