Just keep your eye open on Craigslist etc, thats where I found mine... had to drive all the way to Victorville or Beaumont or something to get it, but $100 was good!
Those darned Airstream polishing people keep the used prices high tho!
Which works both ways because you can get all or a lot of your money back out when you sell it.
Ebay is pretty safe to buy from if you use Paypal.
I had bid and won an item a year ago, and the guy never shipped... I got my $700 back within a few weeks.
I like Paypal, and use it a lot...
To be honest, the Cyclo is a backburner item... You have so much work to do between now and detailing out the shine, you have time...
And if you are planning to set aside a week or two to "get that job done".... You will find that a few hours of holding a compounding buffer will teach you a that the "Insanity Workout" does not only come on a DVD!
I am telling you, even if you are young and fit, you will find and use muscles you never knew you had! It is a full, hardcore workout, that uses every muscle from your fingers to your core!
Other here will agree!
Having said that... you will have a blast... and if you are like me, its the fastest way to loose a day of your life in total rapture, as 20+ years of dullness is stripped away revealing your diamond!
So, get yourself paintstripper, a compounding polisher(there is a great discussion on the Harbor Freight vs higher cost buffers here on this thread), about a dozen wool pads(I have a great hookup for you if you PM me), some Nuvite G6, and also I suggest you get the vented edge wheel pads and bars too.
Oh, unless you are working inside, add sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, gloves, and cases of water to your supply list!
And of course... start a thread/blog so we can all enjoy your progress!
