    Low $$$ Willys truck rebuild

    S-10's used one piece driveshafts only on regular cab short box trucks. The regular cab long box or extended cab short box configurations always used a two-piece driveshaft because of the extra length.

    Curious what all you rodders are using for breathing protection when blasting? I've tried Google, but there's a lot of conflicting information out there...[S I checked out a "sandblasting hood" at Princess Auto (like Harbour Freight here in Canada) the thing looks to me like it would be...
