Hi
I'm starting a new project. in December i came across a used up cinder cone after a post here I got to know it is a 1993 us version.
It was kind of rusted up so i didn't know if it was capable of being properly restored so i decided to strip it before sending it for a respray. Because o lack of time I only stripped it this week

So what's the feedback do you think it respray material or i shouldn't bother?
i think after cleaning it it is pretty good, but i don't have that much experience with rust so I'm looking for you opinion.

You've gone this far so I'd say back to original, unless you have something specific in mind already 8)
