Even more paint prep

I'm almost done stripping paint off of miscellaneous frame parts.  Here are two pieces of rear suspension linkage.  I decided to use another one of my new tools to strip them down.

My "new" benchtop grinder came with a wire wheel on it which makes short work of stripping small pieces.

It only took a few minutes to get the majority of the paint off.  I did have to use a bit of stripper to get the paint off the surfaces that I couldn't get up to the wheel.

Happy New Year

I got a whole bunch of old tools from my Grandpa over Christmas, one of which is this heavy angle grinder.  And when I say heavy, I mean heavy.  I've been using it to strip paint off the frame and I have to take a break every couple minutes to give my wet noodle arms a break.  But I must say, the wire brush head really does a good job taking off paint.

Other than a few hard to reach places the frame is stripped down.  There is a bit of rust in a couple places that I'm going to treat with Krud Kutter.  I also plan to clean up the frame by cutting off the passenger peg mounts and side cover mounts.

Since its finally gotten cold around here I picked up this little heater to warm up the garage a bit.  Its never going to make it 72 degrees in there, but it keeps it comfortable.  Not bad for $20.

With the heat and The Mayor's solemn look of approval I'll be D'ing W in 2013.
