Re: 1968

Today was a good day. I primed and painted the rest of the parts to the front end. My shocks and springs are going to be gloss Sun yellow, the linkage will be Chevrolet Orange and the upper and lower arms will be gloss Black alone with the steering gear box and the frame. Starting Monday I will start with the frame. I have to scrape and wire wheel and presure wash so I can sand blast the frame. My sand blaster doesn't like built up grease and asfault from the last 40 something years. Also a picture of my boys and friend.

Thanks for the info, I had a larger pot blaster that my compressor could not keep up with and now just have a crappy siphon feed hand held that sucks. The speed blaster seems to have a lot of great reviews I may have to get one of those. I am running a 33 gallon craftsman compressor so I cant really expect to run a large pot blaster and I only need to blast small parts anyway. Your project is coming along very nice, keep up the great work!

Re: 1968

Today I wired whelied about half of my frame. My sand blaster would not cut thru the built up grease and road tar or asfault. Tomorrow I will do the inside of the frame. It takes a different wire wheel that the out side. Another trip to my hardware store called Home depot. Here is my Home made rotisserie I built for my truck frame.
First, I got 2 6x6x10' presure treated post. Drilled one 1 inch hole in each post. Mounted a 2x4x4' on each end of my frame. Drilled 1 inch holes to match the post and two pieces of 3/4 pvc 6' long that I drove into the post. Then I got two bolts 12" long by 5/8 and two nuts and the frame turns free. It can rotate 360 without any trouble. Now I can do all my work standing or sitting in a chair. No crawing under and over the frame. It took me abl out 2 hr and the rest is History.

Re: 1968

Today, I did a ton of work on my truck. I sand blasend primed the truck frame and trailoring arms. I see now why I put it off for so long. It was back breaking job. But someone had to do it.

It works great, But it will only blast fine sand. Medium sand clogs it up.

Re: 1968

Very Nice! That feeling of finally finishing the sandblasting and stepping back and seeing that clean frame is very rewarding!
