i wire wheeled it then sanded it with 180 grit i dont realy care about the finish as long as it works and sounds good also the price was right $67 for all the paint and bearings also the paint is rust-oleum enamel in (safety green) i got at at ackland graingers for $7 a can and its a big can i am color deficit but i cant tell much difference from the old to new should be going by tommorow
cheers

Nice looking deck you have there! Did you just paint the bottom side?
