    Default Check out the paint job.

    I picked up my TB301G this afternoon. It will get repainted, of course, but it is kinda cool.

    Default Nope. Not clear coat.

    In several places, the original blue is showing through the scratches. You wouldn't believe the paint job deal I made. I won't give it away until I have pics to post, but this scheme is gonna go.

    Thanks mucho, CUL8R.

    I can make you a better paint deal, drop it off at my place, I'll strip the old paint, buy the new paint and repaint it FREE and have it back to you in ohhhhh about a year, maybe two

    OOOOOOOWEEEEEEE!! Mighty fine paint job. Think maybe black with white to blue fade flames, and the blue would match millers paint code, Of course

    Default Hmmmmm.

    ALL great ideas. Except welderman's. OUCH!

    My esteemed employer paints all of our machines a really ugly purple color to discourage those who would steal. I'll have to get a pic of one for y'all. Every machine the company owns (just about) is at a major job we have going building a new major sports venue for one of our local pro teams.

    i once worked with a woman electrician and she told me how she had
    the same problem with her tools. eventually she started painting them
    pink to discourage theft. worked great. until she moved to san
    francisco.

    Thumbs up purple paint, cool

    when i was ruining a framing comp. in AZ i painted all my stuff neon pink. not only was it les likely to get stolen but it was easy to see if some one was walking off with it or failed to get it painted before returning to a job site. needless to say all the other comp's in the area knew if a new guy showed up with a neon pink tool things were not on the up and up.got a few tools back that way, and kept a few less than reliable fellas off the job site.i also had a much lower loss of tools then most crews, that made it all worth it.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
