Thanks! I think you're being a BIT generous there, but I appreciate the kind words none-the-less! Absolutely do feel free to post photos here - you've more than earned that right!

Funny you should mention the sand blaster. If I was going to do it all over again, that's one of the things I would change - the first thing I would do would be to go out and buy a blaster and a cabinet. Oh well, I guess I've gotten by without it! Seriously though, you won't regret that purchase. You need to start a build thread! At the very least, post a photo or two here of what you've got!

Thanks for the suggestion, that seems like a good idea. It seems like it will be easier to wipe or rub away the unwanted excess than the spray paint I was thinking about using.

Much appreciated!!!
