    removing the finish from a factory weber lid

    sandblasting worked very well.  a little too well. actually warped the rim a little bit.  a little hammering on a sand bag brought her right back into place though.  just got it back from the powder coater and it looks amazing.

    Ultimate Drum Smoker
