I have recently acquired a Bel Aire sewing maching, vintage unknown as of right now. I am excited to get it unpacked and see how she works but the foot pedal and receipt information is taped to the bed of the machine with plastic packing tape. The tape covers the throat area as well as the gold decals. I was able to get the foot pedal off but the tape also covers the gold decals. I am in need of advice. Thanks.
