This is way off the flow of what you guys are talking about, but I thought I'd jump in anyway. I'm just in the beginning stages of a frame up restoration on my 1932 BB. I was thinking that there might be someone else in conecticut who would know of some reliable resources in the area - sand blasting etc.
I know this is very delayed but everything got put on hold due to family reasons. I live in Moodus. I've been told of a place in Colchester but still haven't found it. I tend to beleive it might be a club member who deals with private builders.
