ok guys, i bought this blaster about a year ago from i bleieve fugazzi before he liquadated his collection and left. its built on a denix and has all metal parts(scope, scope rail and other greeblies) and well the paint was chipping you know, looks like it had the real crappy denix factory finish and well one night i decide i was gonna start sanding off the old paint , and well things just got bad from the second i started, the paint got real grimmy in the seems and other places, and well i was afraid to take it apart( i also just dont have the patients for it) and well ive been using mineral spirits and alot of elbow grease after wards trying my damnest to get the paint off, and that wasnt working ( remeber i have no clue what im doing) and well i began to use a wire brush, and well i didnt want to damage the aluminum flash hider, and there looked to be a small hole drilled into the bottom off it and then filled with metal, so i figure i could just go ahead and drill it out and it would come off, i mean that seemed likly enough. and well my drill bit broke in the process and so i didnt get a straight cut. so now im frustrated beyone belief and would be interested in hearing what you guys may have to say, is there anyone here willing to "refurbish" it, or should i just go off and sell it on the junkyard as a fixer upper. i would rather not sell it but in stead buy a new one, i got it as a birthday gift and well ive had a few memories with it, long story and not really star wars related.
