It has already been repainted, but on the whole there is still a lot to be said for leaving a machine in as original, used condition as possible. If it has gone to rust, well that is another matter. I use the view point that these old things can be restored many, many times, but they can only be original once. Also once I tear something apart to fix it, it could be a long, long time before it gets back together!
