transaxle has been degreased. dont worry im not using the sandblasting media on it. that bag just happened to be sitting there when i took the pic
the 147, it aint pretty but she's a workhorse. mows 2 acres a week
front axle and spindles primered
my hillbilly wind-chimes, lol. well if you ever watched 500 passwords videos on youtube, that's what he calls them
you guy probably remember thats what i started with
i used metal etch, then covered it with valspar primer. now im going to have to wetsand to get rid of the few runs i had, then paint, wetsand again, ect. im an amateur at this painting thing. i have a cambell hausfeld HVLP gun and a 60 gallon huskypro air compressor. i also have a sandblasting cabinet, and i dont know how you could do a job like this without it. i sandblasted the frame outdoors, i was wearing a hood when i did it. a 60 gallon aircompressor seemed huge when i bought it, but once you start sandblasting, 10 CFM at 90 lbs is barely adaquate. wish i would have bought a higher capacity pump, but i bought what i could afford at the time. as it is the compressor i have has a cast iron, oil lubricated, belt driven pump, so its a good quality unit just barely enough air for demanding sanblasting work. it will keep up but never shut off until your done.

Now that I have the new to me air compressor finished I did get to sandblast with it for a little bit a couple weeks ago and it was a night and day difference. I could sandblast as long as I wanted to or until the pot ran out of sand.
