Default What would you do?

Alright So after hearing my 1200msx get down and dirty I decided I wanted to get ahold of a few more and make a full winter build out of them.

So stylez got ahold of me one day and asked if I wanted 1 from his local CL and it started from there. After recieving them Im so happy to have picked these up

The only problem is the 600msx is pretty scratched up. And Being me I dont like that so much. After Pondering for a little. I thought to myself. Well im about to get all of my rims for my 51 Ford sandblasted and Powdercoated. Why not strip the amps down and get the heatsinks done also.

To keep the original look of them while giving them a fresh look at the same time. I decided I was going to get them Gloss Black and have a local company that I trust crop the decal on the amp and print me brand new ones.

My question is. Would you take all the time to do this? They are circa 1997. Would this lower the value of all three of them? or would it show that someone took the time to get the professionally cleaned up.

Heres some pics:

It's your venture man. You dig the amps and idea? Do it! They do look nice and black would kill on the appeal.

Keep they as close to original as you can, keeps them looking good. But it is your install and if they are done right should turn out nice.

Me being me, if I went that far with it anyway, I'd get them candy painted after the cleaning process. I'm sure one can be mixed that matches the stock color almost exactly.

Leave em alone. I think they look pretty good. And haven't you ever seen those antique shows where the value of stuff plummets when people try to "restore" shit? I mean, this is CA amps we're talking about and not a Victorian era coffee table, but still.

If you think you'd ever sell these and want what they're worth as old school gems, leve em alone. If you think that you'll want "face value" for them from someone who wouldn't appreciate what they are, paint them whatever way you want. But they won't be original and you'll never get your money back out of the work/paint you put into them.

But, bottom line is if you will end up keeping them, do them up the way that YOU want them done and that will make you feel like proudly displaying them.
