    Sand blaster advice

    Many years ago I built my own pressure blaster using plans from Skinned Knuckles magazine. With today's prices for new units it probably doesn't make sense to construct your own but it has been very useful over the years. Works well with my 5hp single stage compressor. I found the secret to be to spread the sand out in the sun to get it completely dry and then sifting it through a piece of window screen. I don't use it as much these days after my neighbor gave me a blasting cabinet that he fished out of a dumpster behind a Tractor Supply store (it had been dented and thrown away). I find it very convenient to be able to blast inside regardless of the weather. Jim. Yergin

    Vacuum gauge question

    Jerry is correct. Joe retired and sold his car before moving. In retirement, he has published a novel. www.publishersweekly.com/pw/authorpage/joe-flanagan.html Jim Yergin

    Overdrive indicator lights

    Greg, Not in quite some time. Joe retired and moved to, I believe, Florida. He sold his Plymouth before moving. I haven't been to the Sully show in a couple of years and that is where I usually saw Rodney. Jim Yergin

    Overdrive indicator lights

    Ward, Sorry but I no longer have the car so I can't provide a part number. I think you can find them on eBay or from air cooled VW parts suppliers. Just search 6 volt VW headlight relay. Jim Yergin

    Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    How refreshing to learn of a helpful DMV. Congratulations, the plates looks great. Jim Yergin

    I was very happy with the results. I probably did it 8 or 9 years ago. I sold the car a couple of years ago but they still looked good when I sold it. I used a second hand Chicago Electric powder coating gun that I bought on eBay. Jim Yergin

    Started the teardown, and now the build up.

    I was able to powdercoat my 15" wheels using a home powder coat gun and an electric oven/range I got off Craig's List. The wheel just fit in the oven. Jim Yergin

    Carlisle Chrysler Nationals

    My past experience at Chrysler at Carlisle is that 90% of it is devoted to the muscle car era with just a smattering of older stuff. Jim Yergin

    Cool tunes from stock AM radio with no antenna!

    Yes Bob, I used my stock radio and speaker. However I had to use a 12 volt converter to use the satellite radio in my 6 volt car. Jim Yergin
