    Are the first two re-painted? If not then you really take care of your machines.

    mr sops,

    when you repaint the skids, do you dismantle them?

    What i mean is, do you take the arms, cab, wheels, doors etc apart and sandblast, then paint?

    Im planning on sandblasting and painting our mustang 2070...everyone says to leave it together, but im not sure how we can do a good job and get all the corners while leaving the machine together...
