Did you put another color shell and handset on it, or is it just the lighting? Seems they are of a different color.

Same phone before and after.
New shiny phone = Old phone + lots of sanding.

Jorge;
That is some great work.
I always felt Finlover was tops, but you really give him a run for the buck.
I guess Finlover is more into his music now. I fully understand that, I love playing my guitar.

Here's an interesting D1 that Doug Rose did a very nice job on restoring.

More photos of the "after" D1 are posted on the forum in it's own topic. Cost on eBay, $55 plus $11 shipping.

Kenton K has both a notable find and a notable restoration in bringing this 302 back from the dead, or raising it once again to the light of day from the dark world in which it lived for who knows how long. 

This phone inspired quite a few comments in its original forum topic "Took a Gamble: Color 302?"



See all of the above phones in one place at:

Once again, one of the best painted phone turnarounds I've seen yet!

Great job, Kenton!
