...but it had been touched up numerous places with pink....wait for it.....nail polish...

Apol, just spotted this is the for sale section - but re the pink shell - did you try a Chemical Sand? That would most likely have rescued it and brought the original colour back up nicely.

just taking my time not to hit the phone housing.
That is the 'Crown Jewel' of advice when drilling out a payphone lock.

Good work. When I cleaned up my sets, I cleaned the housing well and over sprayed with gloss black holding the can about 10 inches away to maintain the texture but give a good semi gloss finish.
That's how I like my sets, good looking but not over done.

Well I got caught up at work and played around with the vault lock. I used a carbide bit and die grinder on the lock. Worked good. Took about a hour just taking my time not to hit the phone housing.
