    Instructions for riding a Warrior: 1) sit on bike, 2) start bike and idle till warm, 3) pull in clutch and put in gear, 4) release clutch and rip on the throttle, 5) {VERY IMPORTANT!!} HOLD THE F*** ON!!!, 6) Enjoy!! Side effects may include whiplash, wrinkle free skin, and an evil smile resembling the "Joker".

      unless you use plastic media
      I wouldn't use blasting cuz that means extra work
      when polishing I always try to start with the smoothest surface possible

      you can strip it down with AIRCRAFT paint remover and a hard toothbrush
      wear gloves this thing is stings on your skin

              wait.. so you're hitting it with glass bead then just polishing it? Are you doing anymore sanding? Is this glass bead media you're hitting it with wet blasted or dry?

                I hit the last ones i did with glass bead lightly sanded the tore up a sisal. the thumb thottle should take you no more than 20-45 minutes to complete
