Looking at the footpads used during the last refurb, I noticed they are made of plastic and that they are starting to show some rust on the corners, just like early 60s phones that were retrofitted with these pads from the factory. If you had the time, I would "refurb it at home" one more time and replace those with leather pads, like those recovered by Dennis (the other Dennis). Since this phone is very rare, it would be worth it. My 2 cents.PS: I tried your magic ultrasonic dust this past weekend, on a dial for Crag T, and I was surprised. That stuff works very well, even though I used tap water. It even brought back the original color to the copper parts. Thanks!

Quote from: Dan on February 13, 2011, 08:20:47 AMAre you saying the blue 302 is more valuable or the pink 5302 is more valuable? I think the blue is more common, at least from what I see on ebay. Here's the colours of 5302's copied and pasted from paul's excellent site. A clear one would be a sight to see!pink, aqua, biege, white,red, green, clear(With G3 handsets)
Quote from: Kidphone on February 13, 2011, 09:32:29 AMDan....Yes....I was saying I thought the Blue 302 is more desirable, not a slam against your Pink 5302. That's why I was asking, so in your opinion the Pink 5302 is the more desirable set of the two? I really have zero experience or knowledge with the color 5302s....thanks
