Just been hanging out Roger. Trying to keep up on whats been going on. Did you use an etching primer first on your drives. That's what was suggested to me and I thought I would do first. The local paint shop digitized the paint color with there camera and then matched it up to a PPG emeron.

I used PPG DP 90 epoxy primer followed by three coats of PPG Delstar acrylic enamel with DXR 80 catalist.

Touch up? How about I come out there with a spray can.

No prop shafts. Fortunately, I did'nt have any extra parts after I got them back together.

Thanks. Unfortunately, they are too labor intense to be competitive. Most people don't want to spend as much for the stands as they do the drives.
