looks good, got most of its paint... lookin forward to yer thread...
It's not nearly as good as it looks.....
The paint was very loose, and I could strip about 1/4 of it with my finger..... LOL
It's going to be bead blasted, and I will share my trick to getting paint to stick well to mag.
It's Pre-Kote. It's an aviation surface treatment designed to replace the old chromic acid treatments. Unlike those, it works on all metals, aluminum, mag, anything! And it is virtually non hazardous. Air Canada and the USAF use it. $30 buys a quart of it in a spray bottle, enough to do 100 sqf (or so they claim). Degreaser parts before blasting, and as soon as they come out of blasting, spray Prekote, let it sit a minute or two, and rinse with water until it sheets evenly. Dry off, warm part slightly, and spray primer.
I got it from aircraft spruce and specialty.
