I just picked this reel up http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370285669149&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT 1. Is it a good deal or did I over pay? 2. Anyone ever paint a reel? I got it for my wife and she wants it pink so any tips on painting would be appreciated. Obviously I would just paint the sides, but how do I prepare it to get it to look nice?
