First Restoration

Post by Churchill » Fri Feb 08, 2008 4:19 pm

Hello Gents,
Posting pics of my first ever straight restoration. I didn't change the scales because although the horn has some bug bites they are on the inside of the scales.I did all this before I picked up a copy of Bill Ellis's cd.So,this was just by the seat of my pants.Let me know what you honestly think,and what I could have done better. I did touch up the paint in the recessed lettering,hopefully it stays intact.I also think I still need to put a couple of coats of wax on the scales to further seal them.






As you can see the two pics in the middle were before. :lol:

I really like that razor. Never seen one like it before.

Good job!
