Picked these bad boys up today. I carried 'em down to my local shop for a re-build.I swear these guys have been in business over 40 yrs. I can remember as a kid going to them with my dad and getting HIS stuff. It's nice that there are still some old-school boys out there hot rod'n it up. Want ta give a shout-out to Zip's in Conyers Ga. Thanks fella's

My blaster. Over the years I've replaced a couple of the ball valves, as well as the water filter. She's been a good girl.

KBS coatings was the choice for paint. 3 coats of their high-temp primer, and 5 coats of high-temp color. How long will they stay pretty......?
