    Thanks. I have logged many hours with a die grinder and hand sander, and have obliterated a large amount of sanding discs and sandpaper.

    I kind of like refinishing metal though. I think my next purchase may be my own powdercoating oven.

    The oven sounds a good idea, i have a sandblasting cabinet that is going to be overworked shortly, but your an artist.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate that. I pride myself on attention to detail. That pic was taken "in progress", but most of it is still like that. I have a blast cabinet too, and I just installed my HUGE compressor. I'm so friggin' excited about it. It's a monster and flows over 20 cfm at 175 psi or 26 cfm at 90 psi. I'm going to be a beadblasting fool!

    It's a little rough under the hood, but once I get back into full swing with my garage, that should improve. :)
