fsped09 212 Moderator · Posted October 23, 2019 Share Posted October 23, 2019 A big part of why I love collecting is the hunt and the clean up after. I try to restore these banged up items without damaging them further. I take everything apart and put it back together again. Most of these I pick up from Craigslist, flea markets, & eBay, some people just don't take care of their stuff! Please share/post your 'before and after' restoration pics! Please share your go to tips for maintaining your collections!!
