Finished the prepwork for donor parts

Spent the better parts of two days with my hands in the blasting cabinet, peeking through a window which doesn't reveal a whole lot of what is inside, due to the dust.


After a while I fabricated a suction device from an old vacuum cleaner. That helped a lot, until the vacuum cleaner decided to short out and smoke a bit.


This morning I gathered all the parts and delivered them to Galvin where I had the hand brake parts treated too. This time the parts will be yellow-passivated, because that will provide a better profile for coatings than the blue passivation. Got some compliments of the guy at the factory, he said the parts he usually got to treat looked a bit different
