I got the frame painted and put it back on the trailer. I pulled the camper out, we're going camping this weekend, and put the cab inside. Maybe I'll leave the camper out a couple of weeks and see what I can get done on the cab. Dennis

Got some sandblasting done today. The outside of the cab and about 1/3 of the roof. Dennis


It’s hard to remember which pictures went where.

I didn't get as much done this fall as I hoped. Here's some pictures. There were a lot of dings in the cab.

I was looking through your thread and am impressed with your progress. Looking good. I am wondering how the sandblast pot works for you. I'm wanting to buy one from Northern tools I think. I have to replace the floor in my cab and want to clean things up first.

It works good, but I only have a 2 horse compressor. Could use more air, but you do have time then to wipe the sweat off your face while it's pumping up. I have a TIP unit. Dennis

Sounds good. I have a plan to use a 30 gallon water heater tank for extra volume. I think my 20 gal shop compressor would probably keep up pretty well but don't want to work it to death. I've got another one that I use for my nailguns and such at work that I might pipe in there somehow too. Where did you get yours at? Resonable price?

PLEASE don't do that! There is a huge difference between water under city water pressure splitting a seam, and one filled with air that lets go. Life threatening! Water heaters are rusty to begin with, the stress of pressure cycling could easily open up a crack.

Thank you for your concern Ross. I got this tank from a friend who works at an ethanol plant. It's almost new. Has an epoxy liner inside so I don't think there is any rust. Not exactly sure what it was used for. been in my shop for 3 or 4 years now. No problems yet. But it doesn't get cycled too much. I remember that youtube video of the compressor blowing up. Not good. Looks like I need to find a different bubble to use. Thanks again.

I bought the sandblaster maybe 18 years ago. Got it at spring Carlisle one year. About $180.00 Dennis

Winter is finally over and some yard and garden work is done, so I got the cab out this weekend and gave it another coat of primer. Also got the underside of the cab painted. Boy, nothing like bringing it out in the sunlight to show up your flaws. My wife is having a fit that I'm painting this one blue too. Dennis

Well I got the cab painted this weekend. Waterfall blue. I'll probably reshoot the roof, I was having trouble with the gun. Dennis
