Plug Bug: Bumper Mounts

Electric Bug

The bumper mounts started out slightly rusty and really dirty:

I started a bunch of grinding with 60/80 grit sanding discs on the 4 1/2″ angle grinder. I then sanded it with 150 on a square random orbital electric hand sander to get some of the big scratches off, and manually sanded some of the other bits I couldn’t get with machines.

Then, after 25 minutes in the oven, it comes out powder coated and looking like new:

Total number of parts restored on the bug: 2.
