Yep even going to pick up some paint stripper today and strip the hub down so I can get it either painted myself or powdercoated (if I can get the hookup on that I have vendors...
Would much rather sandblast the hub...but seeing as I dont have a sandblaster... I guess chemical stripper it is.
As for life settling down...doubt it. Were starting on some long overdue repairs on our house. New roof and gutters. Just started painting bedrooms upstairs...the list is long..gotta start picking items off of it. But One can only paint so much...then Im going to try and make some BSA progress while we wait for paint to dry.
