    I know the this is not the best color but it's what the client requested. Lavender! The gloss isn't too noticeable because of its weird color. He also wanted the platter painted to white.

    Other things I did were:
    -replace the power stobe LEDs to bright blue
    -33/45 rpm LEDs to green
    -Pop-up lamp bulb conversion to bright blue LED
    -pitch control calibration
    -overhauled and calibrated the tone arm assembly
    -ground wire elimination and modification
    -rubber base repaint
    -new aluminum pitch decal

    After refurb:









    Thanks for viewing guys!

    These decks belongs to popular club here.

    Looks like these decks have been submerged in the ocean for months. They look like oysters have lived on them.
