I bought a used Warn 8275, it works just fine and is worn a bit on the bushings(they are still good though) as are all the seals and everything. What are your thoughts: should I mount it and use it this winter some or rebuild it and powder coat or paint it now?

UPDATE: I tore it down and had the casings glass blasted. Turned out great. I then decided to look into my options for color and protective finish. I chose to go with VHT epoxy paint. I bought a can and painted so scrap first. It said to let it cure for 7 days, after 2 days I pounded it with a hammer and it showed no substantial marks and no chipping I have since finished the whole case and am waiting to get the rebuild kit so this thing is done right. Will post pictures as soon as I get it together.
