thats not going to happen this year

I will be charging up the new batt. today
It's alive
a little bit more tinkering and an oil change and it's ready to go

Cool, I had a GPZ550 about the same vintage.

Today I worked my ever lovin butt off! HOLY COW I am whooped, I am not jarshing.

First off I finished pulling the weeds out behind the garage in my "wrecking yard". Then sprayed some Roundup all over everything hopefully keeping it from growing again this season.
Then I set out to sand blast all the top iron stuff. It was even a bigger PITA than I thought. It took me about 8 hours! NO KIDDING! I am WHOOPED.

But it's done and I am also thrilled.

Brian

Brian, those parts look real good! Lots of nooks and crannys to get into, I can see why that would be a big job.

Holy crap it was a work out, I feel like a blocked a whole car with a long board. I kept thinking I would stop at noon, I would stop at 3 I would stop at 5 but I just couldn't. I marathoned it and worked from around 9:30 this morning to 6:00

Getting them coated looks like a project as well with all the overlapping pivots!

I painted a set years ago, they are very difficult to get every surface that is for sure.

The top hardware looks great Brian! I imagine it's going to look even nicer once you've shot some paint!

I goofed off all day! Met up with 3 of my friends and we took our cars for a 4-5 hr. cruise through the country backroads!

Made my weekly trip to the dump, picked up some molding for the redone bath room, dropped off a couple of my 10" miter and radial arm saw blades for resharpening, put down some fertilizer in the back, flea and tick killer in the front - then went to work on my trim work. Four pieces of wood, you can hold in one hand, common trim, shoe and panel trim (like double sided door stop) - $19.

I did check the car - it's right where I left it last fall(with all this year's updates done).

Probably not going to get it out early this week either:

Today
Rain 54 F
Rain
80% chance of precipitation

Tonight
Rain 34 F
Rain
100% chance of precipitation

Tomorrow
Rain 61 | 37 F
Rain
90% chance of precipitation

Tuesday
Rain Showers 52 | 36 F
Rain Showers
60% chance of precipitation

what kind of blaster did you end up using? and did you set up a tarp booth outside?


I also have a "very low milage" GPz 750 , but it needs a lot of work (its parts have gone bad from sitting for so long)

LOL. I have crap for a blaster! You will laugh but it is a little hand held unit that is about fifty years old. I have a big siphon one but it is buried at the back of the shed and I figured I would get this done faster than digging it out. But I don't know if it would help all that much. As I remember I didn't have enough CFM with my compressor at home and it didn't work very well. But what I was using works great for the small stuff and I get it done pretty fast so I just went ahead and did these things with it figuring they aren't that big, not like doing a frame or something and figured handling them the way you need to the small one would be fine. Probably should have re-thought that. I did get a chunk of fuel hose and stick it over the inlet tube and put the hose in the bag of sand after I had refilled the little quart cup about ten times.

As for where I do it, sitting out in the middle of the lawn with a yard umbrella over me. I figure the lawn can use the sand, it ain't going to hurt it (I hope someone doesn't tell me it will, I am not green thumb).

Let's say it wont help it as there is no nutritional value in 'beach sand'
