    "I have had them covered always, and I spray them down with oil every year that’s why they look dirty."

    Gorton 375-2 casting repaint/surface finish question

    Lots of paper for the DA and in-line sanders. Either make it perfect or make it look like you don't care. But, if you want to be original, Gorton paint was damn near automotive quality.
