Like a Virgin

OK, it's the usual story. Covered in muck and rust, paint worn and chipped, big surface gouges all over, decals gone. Drawband snapped (very common with these big Imperials). So someone's bought it at a recycling centre, found it didn't work, and dumped it in a shed. A makeover was called for. Now it types like it did for the very first time. (The colour, by the way, is "Heirloom White", a creamy white, or a whitey cream, take your pick.)

It looks good enough to eat! The white chocolate typewriter.

A superb job and a machine looking stunningly beautiful in the new colour - again!

Unbelievable! How long did it take you to do this??
