We want to mount it in the rafters of the garage so we don't use up an precise floor space.

Once again, the Benjamin's just aren't growing fast enough... maybe I should plant another tree in the back yard.

Have you tried other media then the glass beads? I keep hearing great things about soda blasting but I think you need some extra equipment to use it so it doesn't clog the gun.
ah, that is key, I have a good size vertical standing compressor, and it works great, but any smaller would be bad news. A small one would be unusable. You def need a compressor though, I use the impact wrench all the time, my air grinder, etc.....

EDIT: haha, stop spending money on your damn car.
