As I sit here and debate whether or not I wan't to ship it out for repair or just replace with the F-1 I looked at the other day. I got half a notion that maybe I should give it a new paint job.....Witch makes even more questions to be answered. I know I can do it, I Do automobile paint work and the metal and plastic of a camera body is no diffrent so, in addition to Do I repair or do I junk it Do I paint? or do I not? If I decide I wan't to paint the thing: do paint it before repairs? or after repairs? What color? Actually I alredy have an idea for that but I am curious? Thoughts?
