Today with the helping hand from another friend adrain fee from af components, who called to return my 2 sanders.
The previous owner used the wrong screws, flat headed ones instead of star.
Not a drop of Cooper grease either to be seen.
Impact driver heavy hammer and large flat screw driver and rachet spanner they came out.
Doors look good but are t so am reskinning them, now you can see the badly finished a posts
