    yeah looks great. mine doesn't have much of that, just dirty. i can do that on the columns but the doors and trim looks like it is blasted to give it texture.

    display case parts - IMG_1565.JPG display case parts - IMG_1567.JPG You are correct. The doors have a textured sort of finish. In many cases lacquer thinner removed decal residue and such. If there are any places in your area I would suggest media blasting the lower case and door. Walnut shells work really well and don't harm the texture of the door. Here's an example. The larger picture is a door I sanded. The close up is of a base cabinet I had media blasted. It almost has a fiberglass appearance in the metal. You can see it close up. Either way it's your choice. The one I sanded I original used a DA sander but getting a uniform appearance around the rivets was challenging. I opted to use a sanding block in one direction only. Finished off with 000 steel wool.

    display case parts - IMG_1582.PNG Actually the Mega was a designation for the single. Many folks just called it Double wide. Mega often refers to an aluminum case. Black doubles are called 3.0 etc.
