    My 99 Bobcat was pretty rusty and was painted safety orange, had it sandblasted at my shop by a mobile sandblast guy, I need a big sandblast rig, and then we painted it at the shop. For a 9 yr old machine she's pretty.

    Bigger is not better downtown. But new would be nice. Gonna look for an upgrade but will prob keep this one as spare, its definitely paid for.

    It's the first one that we did "properly", it took time but I'm very happy with the result.

    Looks good, painting isn't that bad but it always takes 3 times as long as you thought it would.
