Has anyone here ever thought of painting their 301? The one that I got recently has what I call a speckled dinosaur egg paint job going on. When I first got her my first thought was that she needed new paint, as she is definitely not in the best shape. After a cleaning and a wax job I think I am okay with her now. She feels really good and sews great, so it's really just a cosmetic wish, not a need.
Looking online I have only found one picture of a 301 that has a custom paint job.
I am not crazy about the white, it totally changes the look of the machine. However in the future I am not against the idea of painting her...I hope I could pick something that fits her, kind of like the pretty red featherweights that I have seen online.
