  2. Doh, didn't see this one on here or Facebook, or at least Facebook didn't tell me. Next time.
  3. They'd probably accept garden hose going by the trailers I see on the road. Perhaps just sleeve it in some electrical duct so it can't rub?

    Yeah I saw the round bits on the trademe setup, just figured the proper fitlering would go elsewhere or as mentioned air compressor needs to be in clear air. I guess you don't need filters at mask with positive air. You'd just want the inlet supply well filtered. Wouldn't want any moisture or oil residue from airlines etc.

    Were the cartridges legit 3M? Price is good! Where is the air filtered on the positive air setup? Do you need to put the compressor outside so it's drawing fresh air, rather than filtering it?

    Whats a proper air fed setup worth all up? Must be the the 000's? Makes a 3M full face kit with a workshop fan seem cheap as chips.

    Fibreglass or stainless steel packed reso? Cheers

    Filters aren't that bad cost wise. Mask would depend on spraying situation. I'd probably grab a 3M full face one if I was starting from scratch. Already have a half mask unit though, so didn't bother. Money well spent on getting the right gear. /KY has you sorted.

    Are there certain reso's that are better than others? Have seen a few brands (Coby, M&H), some with fibreglass, some with stainless fill. Worth upsizing muffler on a shit motor?

    Removing cat converter from 3AU 1500cc 4 banger, good practice to replace with resonator or not required? Will end up replacing most of the exhaust with 38mm tube and a new muffler as it's rusted out. So before I tuck the exhaust up too high, thought I better check about needing a resonator in there to keep things sounding as pleasant as it can. Don't want rasp.
  12. Flaring guards not an option? Cheaper than buying new wheels like I did, to get a tyre / wheel combo I wanted. For cert anyway, which I assume this is for.

    trade me sandblaster...worth it?

    How will you contain all the silica dust created? For small parts a cabinet works mint, for a whole car, i'd leave that to the pros who can epoxy primer it when done. Leaving you to fix bits as you go with the car protected by the primer.

    @chasinthemirage you should post a photo of the "straight through" exhaust, it's amazing.
  15. I grabbed some the other day from tool shed, they seem to be lasting ok. Can't argue with the price really, 3 for $1.90, less if you are a club member. I grabbed 40, 80 and 120 grit. Cheap enough that I don't mind going through them. Says on the box wood and soft metal. Gets through sheet metal nicely. Birdshit welds take a bit more time.
