Thumbs up Frame Off J10

__Today was a big day for me. I do pretty much everything alone and
after much collecting of tools, like the Gantry, which is a portable Military 1000 Pounder, to the 2 chain hoists, to a LOT of stuff, well, this morning I moved the Gantry into place and an hour later I had FRAME OFF YES!
__Last week I bought a TEXASBLASTER from TexasBlaster.com and Today I got 800 Pounds of KleenBlast and then I sold a job so I am off , LOL , for a few days, but when I get back I will be blasting the frame, I bought a case of self etching primer on the way home today as well and were Off and Restorin' the J10! Woo Hoo!

PS, disregard the crooked towbar, it is just a temp deal for the roller and yes, that is a Gladiator in the back 40 that I will be throwing a T-18 in w/ a lot of rad rat stuff after the tow vehicle for it is done! HA!

Elliott I go outside, shoot a pot-full of Kleen Blast then I strip to the chonies on the back porch, tip toe to the shower chonies and all and strip some more then hose down...drink a Heineken Light, kick-it a bit then I go out and sweep up what I shot, screen it into a wheelbarrow an then load the pot. Then, you guessed it, time for a quick rinse and of COARSE a brewski and a kick back then I suit up, and start all over. So far about 12 or so pot full have gone through the texasblaster . It works GOOD w/ an 80 Gallon 7HP compressor with a lil twin tank compressor plumbing into it as well taking up some slack. It is enough air to keep a .25" nozzle going great w/o stopping for the compressors to keep up w/ me. My new lil Blast Pot ROCKS! I am VERY pleased w/ it's performance and the price was killer!

I really like the blasting tent with floor you set up there. A very good idea.

HF, baby! How did we ever get anything done before they came along?

Looks like your making great progress! Keep us posted.

X2. Artisan, welcome to the madness. Nice Honcho. If it's any consolation I sandblasted the bed on my truck last August..........when the temp's were around 107. Fully understand the need for a cold beverage.

Me thinks those axles were blasted and painted once already...

Looks great man. I know exactly how it feels to be done with that step. What did you use to paint the frame?

Yep, ZACK did my Axles, a Dana 60 and a Dana 44HD BOTH with, um, what are they Zack, Elec Track diffs? DAM! What do you call them thar things Zack? You sent em to me on a truck too!

Good job, that is a great feeling. I got to that point, mounted my flat bed... and then stripped my cab for floor pan work and it still sits there in my driveway waiting for cooler weather

I ended up dragging it to a semi local coating company and let them do the standard flavor primer and paint. Polyurathane? I think he said? It is a kinda thick paint, and black...works for me...
