Today the cast iron frame work was completed on the baby grand project... Below are some pics.
Above: This picture shows when the cast iron frame was removed from the piano, this is how it looked before it was sandblasted.

Above: After sandblasting was done, the cast iron frame was primed then painted with gold metallic. After gold was dry the frame was placed back into the piano case. Notice the newly refinished soundboard and bridge how well it looks now!!!
Thanks to my DAD who was a BIG help with this monstrous beast talk about HEAVY!
I'm getting ready to start stringing the piano soon!
