2k Clear coat bonnet repair

The clear coat has been peeling on my car’s bonnet pretty much ever since I got it.
I had about 400ml of 2k clear left over from doing the coffee table and the weather was spot on.
It’s not quite as good as it looks in the pictures but is pretty darned good. I’ll let it fully cure and after a wet sand I think it will be fine.

Hydraulic Work bench improvements

I managed to disable some of the safety systems in our repurposed wheel chair lift, they’re not required as we are not using it for its original intended purpose.

I added a 2 way joystick control which is much easier to use than the double toggle switches it came with.

Next step is to fabricate a frame to hold the front wheel of a motorcycle 🙂

Blasting cabinet works

I got the blast cabinet working. Only had bicarbonate of soda to put in it. Tried it on a carb. Works ok, needs tapping at the bottom all the time to shake the media up (Bev with a hammer ?). Got all the lines plumbed in. The one I bought to the gas bottle was way too thin, don’t think I even got 100PSI in the bottle. I definitely need a much bigger compressor and a vibratory motor to shake the media up.
