    Not a big project for someone with a bit of skill. However it does call for a refinishing of the frame. Easy if SS frame, not so much if alum or nitride or something of that effect.

    No worries plenty to go around.. Not sure that John Harrison is taking on any work.. I could be wrong, but last I heard his books were closed. Honestly I don't have much time for small projects, and shop minimum wouldn't cover this one.. ;)

    That will require less work for refinish, if you plan to stick with SS.

    A nice glass bead blast always looks nice.
