YOU CAN DO THIS YOURSELF, A PIECE OF FINE SANDPAPER AND SOME STEEL WOOL WILL STRIP THE OLD PAINT (BE SURE TO TAPE ANY PART YOU DON'T WANT SPRAYED) THE INSIDE PARTS ARE EASY TO REMOVE, FIRST WASH REAL GOOD WITH HOT WATER AND DAWN DISH SOAP THEN POLISH WITH STEEL WOOL OR A DREMMEL TOOL WITH A FINE WIRE BRUSH ATTACHMENT. RELUBE EACH PART BEFORE REINSTALLING... BUY A CAN OF GOOD GLOSS SPRAY PAINT AND A CAN OF GOOD PRIMER. SPRAY WITH PRIMER AND AFTER DRYING SMOOTH WITH SANDPAPER THEN PRIME AGAIN, THEN SMOOTH AGAIN. WAIT TILL THE NEXT DAY TO SPRAY WITH BLACK PAINT, SMOOTH ANY RUNS BEFORE RESPRAYING. YOU CAN ADD AS MANY COATS AS YOU WISH FOR A DEEP, GLOSSY FINISH. TAKES A LITTLE TIME BUT GIVES YOU A GOOD FEELING AFTER DOING IT YOURSELF.
