I helped a friend recently with her grandmother's typewriter - repaired, serviced, overhauled, cleaned, oiled, changed some parts, spray painted her typewriter and loads of works done. Of course, all these was done by the professional.

This is her Remington when I picked it up from her place, the box wooden briefcase is in a very bad conditions and the typewriter itself  is rusty, not in a working conditions and looking sad though...

The owner, requested for the typewriter to be painted in turquoise blue and since the owner can't find the colour that she wants, she changed it to red - it is carnival red.  This is after all work done and a sparkling brand new typewriter it is. Carnival red REMINGTON!

 this is her typewriter after make over...isn't it so nice and bright! I love it!  

Next to the carnival red REMINGTON is my own REMINGTON with its original paint and vintage conditions.
