500 Base Refurbishing?
« on: November 17, 2011, 06:06:16 PM »
What do you guys think about respraying a 500 base.  The ID C/D 500 date code is barely visible but if I decide to do this would it hurt the value to make a stencil for renumbering the date code.  All the rest of the parts of the phone are a match including the housing, dial, and handset and I have successfully removed all the discoloration and its back to its original color now.   There is some light rust around the feet and I am certain I can remove it safely without hurting the rubber feet. (dremel?)  If anyone else has done this or If there is a topic on this please redirect me thanks.
