Soda Blasting


With the chrome removed, we could tape the windows and blast for $800. We would need the car a couple of sunny days.

It’s bare metal but it’s primer ready and treated to prevent the flash rust you see with sand blasting.  The bare metal will have a gray finish and if kept inside will not rust for several days.   The last car we did stayed at our shop for a week before it was picked up with no primer.   You can see the results at the site linked    below.   You could bring it by Monday or Tuesday and we could do it the next day.   We are about a mile from the ATL airport one block inside I-285 off Old National Hwy.

Talked with Mom Today

For the ripe price of $21, she got the title.  I also got my time off approved and some money saved to rent a trailer.

Let’s hope this is it.

Chat with Rancho again

It been a while since I spoke with Mike at Rancho about a beefier transaxel.  Plus, my engine specs have changed.  Here’s the new beef:


Our Pro Street Plus would have the strength to handle some fun driving. It would require Type 2 inboard 
CV’s. Trans has a stronger 1st gear, Super Splines in the Super Diff and a C/M Pinion Retainer.
A Super Diff has 4 Spider Gears instead of 2 and a stronger steel housing. It is not a LSD.  I have to order it and it takes about 2 months to get and costs $1495
Pro Street Plus IRS   $1399
Trans Core                $195
Total                        $1594

Hi Jim,
Yes, we can build you a High Performance Transaxle as well to match with the motor.
This is what I can make your transmission look like.

Got the VIN number today

…and I learned that 17 digit VINs started in 1981.  I could order the birth certificate for 50€, but it doesn’t tell you much.

I guess the engine number is more important with these things anyway.
