Last week I got to spend some time in the shop. A friend had recently given us an old industrial sandblasting cabinet. This huge Zero B-300-F was in rough shape, but with a little cleaning up we got it running. At this point we decided it warranted refurbishment.

We got rid of the nonworking fluorescent lighting, found some suitable LED lights at Home Depot and proceeded to rewire, re-plumb and build an exhaust system. While we had to order some new tips and gloves, we are very satisfied with how the machine works.

With this project done, we could turn our attention back to our Sprite project. We used our new blast cabinet to clean some of the trim and bumper pieces and then got most of the lights, the dash and trim taken care of.

I picked up a really nice little Gesswein sandblasting cabinet from a jewelry store. It's got small air lines and a tiny ceramic nozzle because it's designed for cleaning and etching soft metals. It's small and portable and is completely self contained with its own vacuum system. I bought a bigger regulator, lines and controls to send more air and sand through it. I still need to put it all together, but it should be perfect for smaller projects.
