The Cory phone is finished
« on: April 11, 2010, 07:54:11 AM »
Hi guys, after been out of the forums lately, I finished restoring the Yellow AE 80 I posted before. It looks much clean today as compared to the day I bought it home. Although some scars are left because it is too deep to sand. Here are some photos. The first photo is how it looks before I restored it.

Nice job! Is that one soft plastic or ABS? I'm guessing ABS due to the ear cap.

Nice work!  What a difference!

The nickname for your phone caught my attention, as I have a Cory phone in my collection.  It's from a different era and looks a bit different than yours...

I remember that you were working on this phone, it's great to see it finished and looking so good!  Does it work well?

Thanks everyone! ;D

@ Dan, phone casing is ABS

@ paul-f, its nice to see you join us here in the forums, although late, I would still like to give you a warm welcome.

I named it Cory phone because of the late first Philippine female president, Cory Aquino uses the color yellow as her symbol. I also remember the day when I bought this phone, It was also the day after she died.

@ Jorge Amely, I'll try to take photos of the inside and post it here in the forums

Looks great!  The AE80 is one of my favorite phones.  I like the 500 sets, but AE's take on the 500 style has a "funkiness" about it that is cool.

As per request of Jorge Amely, here's the under the hood photo
As you can see, rusts are evident near the feet screws

Ramil:

You could remove the ringer and some other components and remove the rust with a Dremel tool.
