I have been nibbling away at a W2500 for restoration inbetween doing up a Lyric F and saving the planet etc. I stripped it to its cabinet and sent the metalwork away for polishing and chrome. The estimated time for doing the metalwork is 3 months! They certainly don't seem to be having problems with a recession. 3 months wait!
Amusing anecdote of the week: I went to a callout for a Rock-ola which sounded like a simple problem with a microswitch on the cam. When I got there things were not doing what I expected. "Tell me what happened exactly," I asked. "Oh it is hard to remember," he said. "It was seven years ago."
