Gallery of Restorations

#63158 by shipwright » Wed Mar 31, 2010 12:36 pm

As a tribute to the quality, durability, and timeless appeal of the 10ER and the Mark V, I think that a gallery of forum user restorations should be started.

It will give us all a chance to see how many fine restorations have been done and give hope to those attempting their first.

[color="Red"]Post what you like but a nice format might be two photos, one whole machine and one detail of your choice.[/color]

Please participate if you have done one (or many) so that we can all enjoy the show.

In honor of the longest thread I've seen recently, I think Mickyd should start.

I didn't take before pictures and I can only find after pictures of one so here are two after pictures of the one I like the best.

I see that most of us took pictures in front of garage doors :) Could it be that it is the only presentable place we have for a background? :)
