And tomorrow's shaping up to be the same, except for a small morning detour to watch my son fly his new remote control electric park flyer, called a Slo-stick.

I sandblasted the right inner fender (the metal on the other side of the engine compartment), both rear wheelwells and the trunk. In the process, I may have killed the borrowed air compressor (it makes a different pumping noise now). Oh well, I'll just buy him a new one!

I was at it from 9AM to 5:30PM non-stop, with breaks to move the hose to water our lawn.

I need to sandblast some small parts, like the hood & trunk hinge mechanisms, the dash, the hood hold-down mechanism and a couple of connectors that help hold the front bumper in place. Otherwise, I think I'm done with sandblasting!!

I should be able to do all that in a couple of hours, then spray with DP90. Tommorrow will be a long day too, but I'll be "done" with the initial part of paint prep.

Whew!!

Ever notice borrowed stuff ALWAYS craters on you?!?! Borrowed the neighbor's brand new Troy Bilt rototiller a few years back and commenced to seize the engine up! Luckily it was under warranty and not my fault!::

Glad you got some work done. I played with the ground effects kit this afternoon and will hit it again tommorrow...

Dan -

I kinda expected the air compressor to fail, since when I use it, it runs continuously (to keep up with demand). There's no question a larger air compressor would be nice, but it's not required.

I figure if the compressor fails, then I can buy one, fix the borken one and have one of my own in the end. They seem to come in handy...
