patience and an inline sander will take you a long way... mainly patience.

This is the one I use all the time. Get yourself a box of both grits of paper. They last for years.

That orange is pretty nice...

I'm glad that is your decision and not mine. I dislike tough choices.

Nothing wrong with that either. Just a hard decision. I'm sure that yellow would look awesome too.
