I have a B-day coming within the next week...and the Parental Units have been bugging me about what I wanted?
The folks have never understood my car hobby regardless of the fact that I own 5 of them. I told them I could really use a nice Air Driven Orbital Dual Action (DA) Sander.
I have had my eye on various models...but seeing how I have only one car in need of sanding and painting. The top of the line Craftsman seemed like a logical choice.
The folks have evidently picked up on my Vibe for this need...and when I mentioned going out to buy it..I got the NO No No response from them.
I guess after nearly 44 years , they have finally picked up on what my likes and needs are.
I can't hardly wait till spring so I can get cracking on my 1968 Torino GT's paint and body work. Two layers of paint...and ugly paint at that , is not the answer for this classic beast.
I already own a few electric sanders..but Air equipment is so much more effective..espeially the DA Sanders.
My next purchase will be a small Jitter-Bug sander for flat areas...of course this will be an air tool as well.
My last sanding and paint project was my 1988 Crown Vic Police Package. Electric tools made this total sanding job very long and difficult...but well worth the end result. I still have scars from the underhood and drunk area re-enforcement areas.
