Felicitation Doug! You're a really good student...Your phone is so nice now. I'm happy to have a new member in my Western 500 soft plastic family...Your replacement handset cord is like new...I need a grey oxford handset and some  grey cord like your for my phones but it's not easy to find in this condition...This phone is a jewel for any phone collection.



Hat off to you and your new 500...VERY nice!

Next you can move on to the more difficult colours to find. Like black, ivory, maybe green.. .

Thanks's funny, I have been collecting for almost 40 years and never really worked on a 500 set. Maybe move a wire to make it ring or add a modular cord, but never anything like this. A 202 or a 302 I can do with my eyes closed.  This was sure was a challenge and I actually feel quite good about this set. I do appreciate all the help that I was given and the wonderful cord from Skyrider Bill, without that cord, it would have stayed the way it was.  I am humbled by this experience....Doug
