    Thanks for all the comments guys. Jerry, yes, good eye. We have a static phase converter on the Lennox that we used to punch the louvers, and the rotary phase converter is for the Pexto shear (12 ga capacity)

    Thanks!


    The other night while spraying parts, I made a couple trips over to the bus location with the spray gun... in between coats, to get some primer on the bare steel we put in... SPI epoxy on the structural components..





    .....and some epoxy AND yellow added to the nice scraped up lower corner..





    Coming together...





    Rivets were media blasted and urethane only, just like the screws. This shows how well the paint holds up to the installation "abuse"...





    Done!

    Dropped it off before work, picked it up afterward.





    After about an hour in the driveway with an air hose, the flow of trapped media is scarce, but I'm sure there's still some there. We'll get some SPI epoxy sprayed tomorrow night...

    Had some left in the paint gun so a couple of extra pieces were moved in...








    Oh yeah....the "new" trailer wheels were all blasted and ready to go, so they got a couple coats on the back side...

    Thanks guys!


    The frame had some slight pitting so the sides were hit with the DA to flatten things out a bit, and some Evercoat 416 used to address some of our plug weld grinding marks on the frame plates...























    Here's the "winter" heating method for spraying in cold temps. 170,000 BTU aimed at the air return, and the air handler fan turned on constant to circulate the heat. Open window for air intake..























    After three coats of primer, the sides of the frame are looking much better than before...























    Also got some more primer on these parts as well, should be ready for blocking in a few days.

    Robert, from that last pic are you saying you block sand interior panels too? What painstaking attention to detail.
