OK, I'm about to hit a perplexing decision and I'm looking for help in making it.
I have just about finished restoring my Rev 4, Apple II (January 1980 date). When I say restoring, I have rebuilt it pretty much and it has all the original stuff, but I repaired some gouges and resprayed the case with computer matched paint. I have fixed the silver supply and rebuilt the datanetics keyboard. I just have to wait for the paint to harden up so that I can wet-sand the new splatter pattern to make it look perfect.
So this is my decision...
While I have the professional paint sprayer up and going, should I respray my Raised Power Key Rev-0 Apple II case, it has some light scratching and paint missing in the normal spots. I could just touch it up using an artist brush or should I respray the whole thing. I won't have to do any "repairs" on the case this is literally the normal scraped off paint from a monitor.
What do you guys think? Will it kill the value or since I'm not the original owner does it increase the value because now it's restored. My Rev 4, I couldn't live with the case that bad, it was like someone stacked something on top with screws and dragged it across the case, so I had to do something with that one.
