You know...... I would say this doesn't look.. ... HALF bad...... :D View attachment 132183
Nice job cleaning it. I had some mold growing on a couple wire mesh dishes, and I sprayed some Clorox full strength on them, and it killed the mold, and it blew right off with the garden hose. I have a HVLP paint gun in the building and I have plans to paint my dishes this summer. I have one grey and four black dishes that need painted. :)

Looks like a fine dish and installation! I like the building being just behind the dish too, helps with the north winds. If you are going to paint the dish though make sure it's a non-reflective/flat style paint! I painted my 10 footer to match the evergreen trees behind it; now it's almost invisible from the air or nearest public road. The ASC1s work great, mine have been trouble-free (except one that took a lightning hit, @Ti sent me all I needed to get it up and running again, awesome product support!).

So I was looking at the lnb portion of it and noticed that it has a Chaparral feed horn.. Would this be something worth trying to make work or do you think It should be replaced?

Also I am open to suggestions for the receiver...

Doesn't need to have everything on the moon, but I do need to change satellites(obviously).
