    I've got 2 - 66 Red Eyes and the process of cleaning them up is quite fun.

    Did you switch machines? Are you sure this is a before and after picture of the SAME machine? It is hard to believe. You did a wonderful job.
    Again, great job. Does not look like the same machine.

    HAHAHA...I don't think I would be lucky enough to have two of them with that good of condition on decals.

    The second one is going to be ugly....oy'

    (I don't use GoJo)

    Oh...the wheel you see in some of the pictures is the other machine, yes. They are sitting there side by side.

    When they are BOTH done, I'll do a side by side for you =)

    What a beautiful machine! You did a great job cleaning up the decals. What do you use to get all the yuck off?
