    Featherweight repaint - blasphemy!

    It's hard for the purists to see this...so don't look at the photo. Birthday present to myself...metallic cherry. I'm very happy

    ​If your "baby" needed new clothes, then IMHO the red color is perfect.

    I love my sweet "Violet" repainted featherweight. Looking at her makes me smile. Judging by the condition of her case, I think she was feeling a bit dowdy and loves her new clothes too!

    I love the color.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Repainting can actually save the machine. If there is a hint of aluminum deterioration, cleaning it up will ultimately save it from an inevitable end. I guess if you're a purist, black is the way to go, but actually, if you are repainting, what's the difference, as long as you love it.

    Very pretty. Who do you take it to for this job? And where do you get the gold details to put on? I didn't know they were available.

    I like it a lot. If I wanted red I would certainly buy red, no excuses necessary. Actually I was thinking if I ran across one that looked rough I would get my husband to rebuilt it and paint it. It's all good.

    You either love repaints or hate them...
