  1. Soooo.....Whats everyone's thoughts on what's going on with USPS?
  2. 1974 and 75 Datsun 620 trucks - $900 https://offerup.com/item/detail/924602228/?_branch_match_id=686048347037455512 1971 Datsun 521 Pickup - $3500 https://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/d/careywood-1971-datsun-521-pickup/7169950754.html 1969 Datsun Roadster - $14500 https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/d/langley-1969-datsun-roadster/7171135157.html
  3. Thanks for the heads up! Looks like there is one down in my area too. I'll swing by there this week and pick up like 3-4 bags to start cycling though that and that will still be cheaper that a single box from Harbor Freight. This ended up being about 20lbs though the setup. The Harbor freight sand blaster is only rated for 60lbs of pressure in the can itself with 30lpbs max capacity of material. The compressor setup I have going kept her right around 50-55lbs under full stream sanding. That ended up lasing about 12 minutes before it ran out of the aluminum oxide stuff I'm running currently. That resulted in this: (she got primered with some etching weld though steel-it for now) Just the top side of the rail done and still needs a little going back and work. I figure I can reclaim at least 50% of the blast media each time I spray as long as I don't go full spastic with it. Going to pick up a better sifter than what I have now this week and going to finish scraping the rest of the frame down with full prep and then I will pull off the spare and rear wheels / cover the stock h stuff and sit down to a full day of blasting the rear frame and spray primer it. Then I will put the wheels back on the back and see if my bro can come over and help me lift the cab onto the back of the frame and get to working on the front.
  4. PPE arrived this week with a full face mask, and some new welding gloves. Everything taped up in the engine bay did a test spot on the frame and it looks like it should be good to pick away at this for a while when it's not 100º in the tent Anyone have any recommendations for spray on weld though primer?
  5. The one I got was rated for 150PSI / 9CFM / and house painting & airtool use so it should be able to do "OK" with running for longer periods in time though it's not going to do as well as Chucks or a larger setup. If it sucks then I can still use my Bros 30gal on wheels or worst case take the truck and blaster over to his place and use his 80gal when he wants to use it on the Dodge split window.
  6. Excited to see how well his heater boots fit and glovebox goes. The heater knobs he makes and heater vents are fuckin mint 👌.
  7. super jealous of how good that interiors comin together.
  8. Awesome. I have less capacity for stored air but it's good to know that this setup should handle the demand without stressing. I'm not quite sure but I can answer that for you once it's not 100º and I get my PPE in. This setup is a 20lb pot so I should be able to bplast a good bit before having to do the recycle process. I considered having one of those awesome glass sandblaster dudes come out and get it done with the qucikness, but I have some rims I want to sandblast with walnut shells to finish the work on them, Bro wants to use this on the truck he is putting back together above, and I've already had a couple friends reach out wanting me to do their rims / various other parts so I figured it would be worth the investment to "break even" and walk away with a new tool that we can use so I went and bought. I would look into local companies that offer blast media for sale because this little test box was $45 for 50lbs which is just STUPID - but when no one else is open due to COVID...
  9. In this thread you will find pictures for the stock speaker location, but I am still looking for a good picture of the stock radios:
  10. Picked up and put a sandblaster + aluminum oxide sand blasting media on Friday & picked up a used 150psi 15 gal compressor that's rated to be able to run off of 110 and can keep up with demand today. Need to tighten the sand blaster shit, get a full face mask PPE, and a new pair of welding gloves and I will get to work. Going to probably pick up another 50lbs box or two of sand blasting media, but I'm going to try laying down a tarp and catching a good deal of it and sifting / reusing it before I pick extra up.
  11. Hope it's fucKENWORTH it.
  12. Never have I known I wanted something so much.
  13. This is his page: https://www.facebook.com/jakesmakes707 He has some images of the "final" on the left here, and has videos of smacking with a hammer to show it's durability: - he is using a TPU 'rubber' to print
