Makes me crazy

Does seeing something like this on eBay just make you want to purchase them so you can put them back to normal and resell them back into the world?

Does to me...  :)

I saw an AE 80 two tone Gray and Pink awhile ago on ebay. emailed the seller to see if he had the "other phone" since a gray 80 would be worth more to us collectors in one piece but he didn't have it.

Yeah, I've seen this with GPO phones on ebay, people selling two phones both with swapped parts to make them an unofficial two-tone colour, then asking a high premium for them because they're "rare", I wouldn't call them rare, just ruined... ::)
