a sand blaster with give you a pitted finish if the metal is relatively soft, probably not what you want.  And the grit will get in all bits of bearings and gears and wreck it.

Use medium-fine wet-and-dry and elbow grease.

many thanks for all your input, about elbow grease, stuff that takes paint off, giving it a good rub, chuck it in the bin, get yourself a decent reel, the grit getting into places you dont wont grit to get to, yee yee heard it all before, I have found a place, took some doing, so might go there tomorrow and see if they are still open,

I have made up a plasic cup thats fits in where the line spool goes, so dust is not a problum,

right, get it striped of paint, then powder coated, then hand painted by me in the OMRLP colours, Twisted Evil , I will have the best looking Mitchell on the river banks lol!
