I'm bored.. Nothing else to work on until i get some money to do my v-8 swap. So, considering I have seen alot fo you guys do some cool and crazy things, I figured it was time to learn how to paint flames. Now, to do this, I feel the need to redo something, so it gives me an excuse to paint...


The victim...

the compressor, torn down to the tank itself, i cleaned all of the buildup and gunk off of it. it was gross.. now the labels have to go, some grinding on the rust, and then some sanding..

update... cleaned up, grinded rust, and smoothed out the tank. on the decal it had a date of 1972. LOL so this thing is a classic!! i scrubbed down and smoothed the belt gaurd. I broke out my new Craftsmen Reciprocating saw, thanks to my fiance, and dropped the sitting height(i'ma minitrucker.. and everything on this site has been dropped from a cadillac to a radio flyer) so why not an air compressor!? i redid the mount height of the wheel on the rear and the front bracket, and the drop i got was 1 1/2" on the rear and 3" on the front, but I am making rubber boots for the front, so after all is said and done.. it will be dropped 1 1/2"/2 1/2". hmmm... and the sad thing is, I am taking the time to do all of this :headbang:


this pic is a pic of the extensive rust build up on the surface and ALL of the welds...
