Spent today breathing in lots of rust dust. I had planned on shot-blasting away most of the rust with the thought that a new compressor and gun would make the job a piece of cake. It is still very time consuming and tedious, so to speed it up I’ve used a flap wheel on an angle grinder to get most of the rust away, then plan to use the shot-blaster to get into corners, folds etc.


The rear axle before, then after.


The drive shaft before and after:


Assorted front support bits before and after (and the drive shaft again, don’t know why) (and the rear traction bar has been done).
