Seat pedestal removal

Are you sure it isn't the screw loc type ? Some of them screw in at the base and the seat swivels , not the pole.

How much should I ask for this for a quik sale ?

That is a very reasonable price. offer it for $800 and let them talk you down to 600, they will feel like they stole it. :) I agree start at $800 , after you clean it up as suggested above. Everyone likes to dicker on the price and if they think they got you to drop down a couple hundred they'll be...

Headlight Restoration

Those look great ! Only reason I suggested the kit is to get the mandrel with the polishing pads , it will last a long time. The sandpaper of course can be obtained a lot cheaper elsewhere. I bought a kit from Snap On once and it was like $70 , it had a few other buffing pad attachments that are use...

Buddy of mine does this on the side. He just wet sands. What he said ! You don't need to buy any expensive kits , I do recommend you buy the Mini 3M buffing kit you can get at Oriellys or Advance for like $17 or something similar It will chuck up in a drill or right angle buffer/grinder and will wo...

Media blasting a tin?

Got a quote of $150 to get the boat blasted using glass. I'm fine with that since I'll just be painting it anyhow. That will give me time to check for leaky rivets :) Is that inside and outside ? I was quoted $350 to do inner and outer hull on my 16' Bass Attacker rebuild so I wire brushed the oute...

1984 16' Bass Attacker Complete Rebuild

Finished up with the wire brushing of the outside hull tonight. When I was satisfied that it was good and clean I then went over half of it with a 3m scotchbrite pad with dish soap just to give it a cleaner (white) look and remove any oils and dirt that remained , I'll do the other half tomorrow nig...
