When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
true john but i can strip all the crap away and repaint from bare metal should it be the wiser option and thats why i ask i value the guys opinions here
If it has been messed with once, the damage is sadly already done. If it can be improved upon, well, that is up to the current owner.
