Amazing Terry, ^ ^ ^
Who thinks up the brackets that you are using. I still use C-clamps...
I like your forum because of what you do but have neat gadgets too.
Thanks for the show.
Tim
By the way I saw you using a sanding bar it was air powered and was about a foot long and 4 inches wide. You were using it to sand the gas door hole. Are those rentable? I really think that would work great too sand my repairs on the PA>?
Keep up the great work.

Good Morning, Tim, I don't know who thinks up these gadgets but I'm sure glad they did, . makes life so much easier. The tool your talking about is an air file/board depends who you talk to, it saves on the arms instead of using a hand one although I do use a hand one when I get down to almost done, usually use like 80 grit at first to get shape and switch to the hand ones after. Not sure if you can rent them or not, maybe talk to an auto parts store, sometimes they rent tools, other than that Harbor Freight sells them not sure on the price, you can go to their website and look, mine is probley 30 years old and still going, course I don't use it like I did. making repair patches still on the third door still, now tying in the inside to what I welded on the outside.

Tim, I believe this air sander will use a lot of air, like the DA does. Do you have enough air to power this thing?

ronspradley[/QUOTElike the DA does]
Thanks Ron for the heads up on pressure, went back to web site and looked and it says Working pressure (psi)
90 PSI I have two compressors my MH pancake 150 psi and my garage one 5 horsepower plenty of air. What is "like the DA does"?
Thanks,
Tim

Tim, DA sander is dual action, the air sander. PSI is not the problem with these air tools, it is CFM, cubic feet per minute, the volume of air. My shop air compressor, an inherited Craftsman, does 90 PSI but only 2.6 CFM at 90 PSI. Probably need three times that volume or more to operate an air sander.

Would anyone consider a belt sander for roughing in the body work?

I've used 1/4 sheet electrics like - Palm Finishing Sander

A few OLD 1/3 sheet units like - 1.6 Amp 1/3 Sheet Heavy Duty Finishing Sander

Electrics work fine BUT they don't like wet sanding or working in paint fumes !!!!

Air tools are usually lighter, faster and safer to use. You can use them underwater if needed. BUT most of them take a LOT of air to run. 4-5 cfm at minimum to keep them working.

Tim, The 5 horse should handle an air board or DA. Look on the data plate and see what it says for SCFM @ 90 psi.
IF you get the HF air board, bring it home, take it out, oil it (ATF or Marvel make good air tool oils) then RUN IT a bunch. The bad ones tend to fail real quick.

Don't bother with the HF sandpaper though, unless it has gotten a lot better you would be better off with printer paper !!!

For a good price on quality abrasives take a look at
Lehigh Valley Abrasives | Flap Discs, Surface Conditioning Discs, Abrasive Sanding Discs, PSA Disc Rolls, Surface Conditioning Belts and Metalworking Abrasive Sanding Belts or Welcome to Supergrit.com - Supergrit

Thanks for the heads up. The air sander I am using, uses adhesive to stick to the sander pad. My pancake compressor really can't keep up, But the compressor in my garage works well and I can sand for a long time. There is a lot too sand. The PO's product used is hard as a rock and takes a lot too get it semi-smooth. I'm using 40 Grit paper, got it a Manards seems too hold up really well.
Its been raining the last 2 days so can't get too work on it.
Went to HF yesterday by the S&B's I spent a good hour and a half looking and looking. Found a Bike (2) rack and receiver that will work wonderful and I still can use the mud flaps that attach to the receiver also.

Found a new Flagg pole too replace the piece of junk I bought in Quartzite at the tents last year. Its aluminum and can hold 2 Flags and is 1/4 of the price also.
By the way its only 59 degrees.... BRRRR I told ya popeye the seasons are changing. :whistling
Thanks again for the help,
Tim

Good Morning, Lots of great info there, glad everyone is getting in here. Got the third door done and on the PU. Next up is the passenger side door, need to strip it out, it is hand roll up window and no power and the door that came off is all power so I need to take everything out and fix one small dent and paint the inside and prime outside then mount it. Once that's all done I can paint the cab . Then we are taking off with the TH and Toter for a few days going up to Watkins Glen SP and basically do nothing, well actually there is alot of trails ect. to walk. When we get back I can pearl and clear the cab, then start putting it together.

Again, nice job on the 3rd door Terry. Glad that you and Eleanor are getting away, you both deserve the relaxing time away.
Tim,
I spent about 45 minutes in the HF here yesterday, got some 2" sanding disks and arbor to set up in the drill press to try my hand at doing an engine turn on the aluminum that I am having cut to replace the table top on my grill stand. Don't now how good it will turn out, but we will see. Will post pics when I get it done. Hopefully the guy will have it cut out for me by the time we get back to Florida.
Frank
