I think it looks better. Like that silver color much better than the blue. I have an old Remington that could use a face lift. You've got me thinking now. Did you have to do any prep work?I like the bag too. I have a little Royal that could use a better transporter. I'll have to pay that site a visit.
I did a bit of light sanding on the worst gouges, but I didn't strip off the old paint. I did pop the Olivetti nameplates off and then superglue them back in place once I'd repainted the body.
Thanks. Let me know how it holds up.
