I did do a few things over last week and the weekend, I repaired my agitating solvent tank, and started a few minor improvements on my blast cabinet. I'll add some pics/video soon!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your holidays turn out well!

A few pics from just now. I have a metric chassis (GBody) dirt track getting a cage, a go cart we stretched 8" for the adults, the "dump", a Club Car Carryall that is getting the engine rebuilt when the parts show up, and my 65 El Camino drag/pro-street project.

We bought the frame with modifications and welding already done, like the square tubing back halve and the frame rail boxing along with welding the factory seams.

Also rocking kerosene wick heaters for the time being, I need to round up some case for a permanent solution.

New Year update! Some of you may know I have an old 2002(?) Laymor LB30 Mini Backhoe, a handy little piece of equipment to have. I recently purchased some bucket forks from Amazon, and I'll tell you they are handy! I puchased them just in time since I also purchased a TC-950 Tire Machine, that needs some love due to air leaks, but they are all simple fixes.

The forks helped tremendously in making moving this a one man operation. I placed the machine in the shop to start and troubleshoot. The air regulator and oiler are shot, the gauges are all crap, and there are a multitude of air lines and fittings leaking. Someone at one time replaced the air lines, but didn't do a good job as there are broken pieces of line in the fittings still.

Also, the inflator pedal was seized, and the inflator hose fittings are jacked. I also have to free and lube up the front pedals. I ordered a bunch of parts yesterday, and by next week the machine will be cleaned, repaired and in service! Now to acquire a balancer.

The last photo is where I left off last night. Tonight I plan to disassemble and clean out the bead breaker cylinder and the table clamp cylinders.

A little more over the past few evenings. I took the rim clamp cylinders off, cleaned and inspected them, they are good. Also took the rim clamps and slides off to clean, blast and paint. I cup wired the table to get the rust off.

The clamp cylinders were missing all sorts of crush washers on the banjo fittings, causing massive leaks.
