I had to look it up again, since it's been a while, but my setup used a Clemco Zero BNP. It used the standard number 4 gun and #5 ceramic nozzle. The down side of the Clemco is that you need a foot pedal. Total setup is around $120-ish.

I felt the gun gave good results (it very quickly stripped paint, surface rust, and left a nice uniform finish), but I never tried to remove really bad flaky rust with it.

Replacement chassis arrived

Yes, small stuff in a blasting cabinet. I am guessing someone out there can blast the truck with soda or walnut shells, but no idea who. Expect it to be pricey though.

My replacement chassis arrived this evening. Thanks Bill!

Nothing to report on the RRC front, although a strategy has been settled on. Some of the locals want to pick at it and ill take what's left up to randy next month on the way to RC

I have been busy stripping steel off parts and Ed and I made a galvy run yesterday. It doesn't look it but there are over 200 pieces there!

Evapo-rust

I tried a product called evapo-rust ( http://www.evaporust.com/)[*] on bits I can't galvy (and a few just for testing before galvy) and have been pretty happy with the results. I don't seem to have taken any pictures of really rusty pieces, and all of these were galvanized, but in these where you see black on the galvy bits, those were areas with rust.

Does anyone know where I can get pins for these hinges? I'd like to separate the halves and galvy them.

I also finally got around to bolting my compressor down this weekend. I haven't had time to make a trip out to tractor supply to pickup some isolators so ended up making some from washer/dryer isolators and some pieces of roof capping!

I've had good luck with that product. I will say that I have a suspicion that pouring any used fluid back into the new container will kill it. That seems to be the case for the first gallon I bought.

Were these parts rusty before using that product?

BTW... I love your disclaimer.

I didn't take before pictures but you can look through the album to see what they looked like. The gas cap would be a good example. Keep in mind just because they are shiny doesn't mean they don't need paint now (or more galvy) but it does clean parts with relative ease.

Bill I poured 2 gallons into a tupperware tub and have been re-using it so no idea about putting it back. It's ability to clean seems to be dropping off the more I re-use it though. I have just been throwing parts in for a few days and pulling them out and giving them a light wire brushing with a copper brush when I get the time.

Nice work Charles. Couple of Q...where did you get the galvy work done? Do they do small jobs e.g. hinges or would it have to be part of a big job?

We are using V&S in Delaware and should be able to report back at the end of the week how it went.

http://www.hotdipgalvanizing.com/loc...newcastle.html

I am sure it would have to be part of a bigger order to make it worthwhile as there is a minimum fee accounting for over 500 pounds of steel. I will be making another run in a few months as soon as I get my frame and bulkhead work done and you are welcome to throw some stuff in then.

Keep in mind the pin will likely vaporize in the process so we'd need to find a supplier of those pins and then dismantle before galvy to be sure we don't lose any bits. Which is why they didn't go in run #1.

p.s. Check your text messages dammit

A big thanks to those that helped me strip the RRC down to the frame today. Here is a 1 minute time lapse video of the day.

Jeez. I ask for help and I get crickets. Looks like fun. I would have been there but I am out of action with a corneal ulcer.
