    Bugs $%#*&%(*%*&$*%^)_(*&

    I just finished my rehab on a Q3200 and was doing the burn in on the lid paint and a bunch of bugs decided they liked the green color enough to hop on during the burn in. It is bad enough that I will be sanding and repainting it. I guess I should be doing my burn in's inside the garage from now on.

    I was too ****ed. I tried to carefully remove them. But made a bigger mess.

    After our chat last evening, I figured, “better to let Bruce try to relax”!

    I did get the rails off but ended up causing some damage (through frustration) and ended up junking the firebox, not too bad as it was free. Win some, lose some.

    OK, I got it repainted and the bugs left it alone. I used too rough of sand paper when I sanded it down, but with several new coats of the green and then clear, it looks pretty good. GOOD ENOUGH anyway and better than the bug farm it was before.

    Just in time for the Green Bay Packers NFL season.

    Once in a blue moon I would almost wager that I didn't see a new thread appear in the "New Posts" link but it's probably my old age. Sorry for your mishap but that is a beautiful Q.

    That looks really great. What kind of clear coat did you use?

    Rustoleum. It is rated for 2000 degrees. It will turn any finish to a GLOSS. Even matte paints.

    That's a work of art that should be in the Weber museum. Great job!
