    Default Bulgy Bakelite

    Bought an upper/lower advertised as "bulgarian black condition good.$6.00 shipped" I thought it was a beatup plastic set.When it got in I opened the box and thought I had been hosed on my $6 and it cost the sender $3.85 to ship it!Rough surface like a bunch of dents covered by MANY coats of flat black paint but the inside of the lower was not sandblasted or painted and I could see swirls and sheen so I stripped the paint chemically and wet sanded by hand.220/320/400/600 .All the fur laid down but it was still dull and weird looking except when wetted.So ...multiple coats of low gloss tung oil.I don't know what this stuff is really made of but it actually seemed to absorb some of the first few coats .Don't know how it will fair when heated way up but it sure looks better now.Had to put it on the Bulgy 74 Mongrel Classic.

    That looks really good I really like it more than I expected when I got me a set for my polish UF.

    Tote that little one along tomorrow and we'll let it go bang.

    Which is more than Marla ever did for me.
