Also one of my dreams came to reality, one Sunday evening about 3 weeks ago I was looking in my garage on all things that had to be sandblasted and wondered when I we could be able to find someone that could help me.
The next day they called me from one of our workshop at work asking if I wanted a sandblaster cabin....HELL YES....2 hours later I picked up this cabin. Only 6 years old and barely used.Image
So now most of the parts is blasted and epoxi painted ( no pictures of that)...Image

Looks great and even better that you’ve done it all yourself. Well done.

Re: My 1964 Double door. And a Tempo Matador 1950

Last weekend I bought a 25hp engine and also got a gearbox with it.
The gearbox had short splined drive shafts and no gearbox number.
The engine had the engine number behind the fan house ontop of the engine.
I got the tip that it could be parts for a Tempo Matador so this saturday I went back to the seller and and he had no clue about this.
The engine was in the barn when he bought the place 19 years ago.
I left and stopped about 1km away at a house were I saw some people standing.
One of this older guys knew about a wreck in the forest about 400 meters from the farm I bought the engine.
He showed me the place and there it was.
He had lived there since 1971 and the wreck was standing there already at that time.

The guy that showed me the place knew the land owner so 3 hours later it was mine :lol:
And this sunday I started the rescue of it.

The pick-up was standing on its wheels but it has sunk down in the ground 10-20cm.
So I started some digging :D
And now it is standing on it wheels ready to get it out of the wood and the brakes on the rear wheels can also now rotate...

Here are some pictures of when i found it.

Now on saturday we are going to use a tractor and lifting it in its front and letting it roll on it's rear wheels.
