My most significant accomplishment of the day was convincing Kang to do the right thing. Other than that and going to a lovely princess tea party, I also pulled the bulkhead and breakfast, and stripped the seatbox down to the aluminum.

I appreciate the advice! But I think the engine hoist is the right thing to use and may need help sourcing one!

I got nothing done on the truck over the break, and then had a short but very busy work week last week so got nothing done then either! But I did score a nice compressor over the break off of craigslist!

This weekend I got the steel stripped off the bonnet, doors, and most of the truck cab side/back, although ran into some stubborn screws holding in the glass channel (and a steel rib).

More pics on my phanfare album.

My bonnet frame is in pretty sad shape but it looks like Craig has another door I can use for parts at a minimum, or with any luck it has a good frame.

I have some breathing room for the galvy run now that Ed is doing his frame, but I am wary of the ability for the galvanizing to come put well without a lot of prep. So I might change strategies since Ed is going to get his money's worth on this run without my stuff and just send a few pieces that I wouldn't be worried about appearance and see how they turn out before taking everything down. I can take the rest of my crap when I take my frame and bulkhead. That or I get some prep done beforehand...

I'll start a thread at some point about my blasting woes and see if anyone has any good ideas, but I have a good compressor now but still don't get good results with Pedro's HF blast cabinet.

I did get to do some thinking about the EV side over the break, and ran some numbers for gearing and should start a thread on that too. I am leaning towards going direct drive to the series transfer case. I think I can come up with some workable gear ratios but some of this depends on the power of the AC motor/controller I end up with.

Omg, that is a mother of a compressor charles!

Regarding blasting results, I will have to stop by and take a look. I used 50 lb bags of aluminum oxide in 80 grit. The gun I used was a large ceramic nozzle, a foot pedal, and also 3/8 inch air line all around.

You really should have absolutely no problem with air supply with the engine from the titanic in your garage

I am not sure if it helps, but 10 spline range rover classic 3.54 diffs bolt into a series housing. You will have to add a filler plug to the rear, but no big deal.

Jebus... That's a big arse compressor.

You can have the doors off my Series it you need them. I got new doors for it.

CRAP Charles!!! You won't be able to fit cars in the garages now!

Are you taking appointments now for soda/sand blasting - or do we wait until the spring?

Yeah, it might be a good idea. I have twice the CFM the cabinet calls for yet it still isn't giving me the results I expect (unless my expectations are out of line).

I think the issue is the cabinet combined with media of choice. I have a small hand blaster called the speed blaster that I can bring by if you want to try a different gun. It won't be the end solution but will give you an idea of what results are from a different setup

Yeah I'm thinking a different gun and a larger than 1/4" feed would do it. The cabinet is just an enclosure with the gun hooked to a pickup that appears to be 3/8 or 1/2 before the tube to the gun.
