Glad you got the blaster working Scott. Straining the sand is allot easier fix than having to deal with lumps in it if it's not dry. So you like the pressure pot now huh?
Yes, worked perfectly. My compressor struggles with it though. Mine is the 60 gallon CH brand, and it never turned off while I was blasting. Got awfully hot.

Here are some pics of where I am...

Found these holes when I sandblasted this time. I don't remember them when I sandblasted last time! Clay welded them all closed. he did a great job.


After welding, skimmed with glaze. I have done this twice now. The finish isn't as good as I did the first time, but this time it should stick! Paint tomorrow...


Grounding buss I took out of an old breaker panel. It is a big one so I cut it in two pieces. A short piece for the back end, and a long piece for the front. I am cleaning it up.


This is a tool that you should have in your box. This is an impact driver. A MUST have tool for stuck screws.


Ground buss for back of Jeep. This will catch all the rear lighting, gas tank, etc. The large lug will be for the main ground. It will go to the front.


Wiring for fuel sender. I am going to be one of those POs that wires everything with the same color wire!! I don't plan to sell, so it shouldn't be a problem. Tank is repainted, wiring has dielectric grease and heat shrink.



Why do people drive their cars through deep water??? Some folks ain't got no sense!

The ground buss is a great idea Scott.

I have one of those hammer powered impacts, the work great in many situations.

You sure you thought this one through Scott? Any troubleshooting down the road you will be mad at yourself when you are trying to trace wires. Actually, Clay will be mad at you.

Skipper I knowed use wuz well grounded now this just reinforces that idea!

Been busy since we got back from seeing you! Work has been a overload they transfered a guy out and now want me to do his job along with mine with no cut in service and no extra time. Gotta love the corporate think! Plus the Gator had major storm damage this weekend lots of down trees and two badly wrecked cars from limbs.

Also she wanted to paint the house and "repair a little damaged siding" I kept my mouth shut since I knew it was going to turn into a Major project. So guess who's re-framing the south side of a two story house? She had four nest's of carpenter ants these colonies were so big they had freeways city halls and they had converted Roach Motel into a luxury spa/ retreat!

Good news is that I have enough lumber that I can make a JK swing which will be more high falutin than your CJ swing since it has an electric poodle heater and cappuccino maker.

My CJ is crying out for attention and I feel bad.

Been wondering where you wuz! Glad to hear you are still in the land of the living! Food for thought... that guy could never have transfered, and your company could not continue in a profitable manner, except that you are there, in your position, ready to shoulder the load. Always seems burdensome when an employer gives you extra work, but to me, it's a blessing. God put the Best Man in place for a reason... that's YOU!

The house repairs should be a snap with your background! You have the benefit of a couple pair of young, strong legs?? meh... youth... it's over-rated!! Go get 'em... Gatorbait! HEY! A NEW NAME FOR YOU!! I like it...

Nice idea on the grounding bar Scott. Something you could do to make it even better is to use a rubber gasket bewteen it and the frame. Anytime steel and aluminum contact each other corrosion starts between them, it's a chemical reaction, and that will migrate over the buss bar in time causing your grounds to be less affective or even quit working. Do the same with the bolts that hold it to the frame too, make washers out of hard plastic or rubber to eliminate the metal to aluminum contact. Folks with aluminum tubs face this issue all the time and that's what they do to curb the problem.

Scott when I sandblast I have a big shop fan that I point at the compressor and tank. That heat really builds up but the fan will help cool the tank air and also give the comressor itself a break from all of that heat. I'm sure your tank is hot enough to burn your hand if you touch it and that's bad in every aspect. It's a pretty cheap way to add to the time your compressor pump last.

I wonder if there will be a time in my life when I finally get it!? Probably when God calls, but I hope I don't have to wait until then. I mean, at 51 there is just so much that should be second nature. DIDN'T EVEN CONSIDER chemical reactions, electrolysis, etc. How many aluminum boats have I owned and operated in salt-water??? This I should know. The screws are galvanized sheet metal screws, which Clay WELDED to the frame (I was going to leave that out)!! Maybe the heavy implement paint will preserve the buss for awhile...

And why didn't I think about turning the fan on the compressor? You have mentioned that before.

Thanks, Jim... God Bless, Bro...

Grill is done. No runs. Came out pretty good. How long does it have to cure before I can put everything together?? I'm impatient that way...

Give it 4 hours so you will have to flip your hour glass over 4 times.

Single stage but in satin. I didn't want shiny military spec paint. Know whut I mean Vern? You are my benchmark... whether you want to be or not. Trying hard to keep up with pman!

Storm caught me completely by surprise, and I haven't gotten the windows sealed up yet!

Interesting thing about work (my employer). They don't want me back until I'm 100%. Tore the fascia(sp) in my lower right leg... hurts and is swollen! Doc wants me back on the 23rd of this month. I figgered my employer would put me on light duty for a week or two. But no, not injured OTJ. I have to use sick leave and annual leave until I am released by Doc. So I have to get the Doc to release me before 23rd, hopefully back to work Monday. A good time to work on Clay's Jeep.



Here is what I have been up to this morning. This is PGP time...

mocked up lights on tub rear...
sanded/repainted front driving lights...
wire-wheeled one HL bezel (PO painted)
sanded wiper cover (not shown)


In the last pic you can see the blob of silicone on the inside of the bezel. This is a PO repair. What is the tab used for, and is it necessary? Tank you bery much...
