Ebay Sellers & bead/sand blasting...

Postby NaughtyBits » Tue May 29, 2018 6:12 pm

Just thought I'd whine about the proliferation of otherwise good 2nd hand seagull parts listed on eBay that appear to have been blasted lately - mating faces, bushings & all, more often than not. Not a fan.

I'm close to wanting to organise a protest & make up some 'free the nipple'-like posters/memes to help stop this abominable practice.

Maybe it's just me...

I have never placed a bid on any item that has been "blasted" or cosmetically "repainted", I much prefer the "honest" look warts & all"!
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Yup, same with me but buying polished parts arent a problem.

I agree, why not just clean the part and list it as is?
I saw a cyl8nder a while back that had been blasted. Even the bore!
