Epoxy primer? I like the instant garage for the sandblasting . Keeps the mess neat and out of everything else. Thanks for the pics. i like how you dressed it up too.

The false front is to protect from prevailing wind which was beating the heck out of wigwam. Also floor is covered with 8mil poly to prevent condensation and for easy recovery of blasting media. I store my old truck in there to keep garage space at a maximum.  Once the cover has dilapidated enough I will skin it with tin or plywood.

I should teach the wife to weld. There is a lot of minor patching required on the front clip pieces which I want to get reassembled ASAP so I can tinker with the SS12 I brought home 2 weeks ago and have not touched. Although I do think about it. The fact the SS12 hood was butchered got me thinkin'. Maybe remove its front clip and fab a retro front clip, vintage tires and AG wheels???

Might not be a bad idea and she might enjoy it. Women are good with their hands and did a lot of welding during the war years. Get her some good welding sleeves and gloves so the pain doesn't ruin it for both of you.

Your projects looking real good. I love old vehicles, they had style. 

Oh and I'm lucky I guess, my wife is a professional welder. I weld too but a blind man could tell the difference between our work. Lols.

Thanks for posting this.

Finished off the epoxy primer  on the interior of cab..Sandblasting the underside of a car is just as much fun as it sounds!  Gets some foggy inside the cab painting..

If you wear bifocals DONT when welding..World of difference,,,.use magnifying lens in helmet.  I also put a magnifying lens in one of my manual welding helmets for doing all my grinding...Much nicer IMO than using a shield and the plastic replacement lens are cheap.
