The blaster is a Clarke pressure pot unit. I think it’s discontinued now. The compressor is an old Speedaire 5hp 2-stage unit with an 80 gallon tank. Sorry, I don’t have any pics of the compressor right now.With all that sandblasting I'm curious what your using for an air compressor and blaster?
Yes indeed. With a new 3.0mm nozzle it kept up pretty well, but it still ran continuously. Once the air got cooler it was actually able to keep up and shut off, much to my surprise (actually it scared me and made me think I had seized it!). This is the first time I wished I had a larger compressor. If I do this again, I'm thinking about getting a small gas-powered air compressor to supplement this compressor so I can gain so overall volume. It would be handy to have a gas powered one anyway.Probably gave that compressor a pretty good work out
No I hadn't planned on it. Where specifically was the rust located so I can start inspecting?Are you going to remove the rear side windows? Our '94 Suburban developed rust there and I would have never guessed it as clean as the rest of the truck was. Far less rot than yours has. You have a lot of time in this.
I was able to take a good look up into the quarter because I have the wheel arch removed and there’s no sign of rust. Thank you for the tip though!!It was on the driver side (salt side) on the bottom horizontal edge, about a foot or so back from the front, vertical edge of the window, if I remember right.
It's my first time using them. I think Eastwood has had them for a while, but now Harbor Freight has them, too. They're working well so far.never seen that style of panel holders before. pretty interesting
I don’t recall where I heard of it, but this i my first time using it. I’m liking it so far....it covers well and most importantly doesn’t seem to affect the welds - that was my biggest concern, but no problems so far. Of course it’s too soon to report on how it protects from rust.I never heard of Weld through primer before.
