I have to say that statement sums it all up!  I have repainted cabinets
before, but only because they were in need of rust removal.

The rest have character.  I almost repainted my NC-173 because it has a lot
of scratches. Then the more I looked at it, the more I could almost see the
people before me staring at the dials trying to tune in that distant
station.  I know it sounds weird,  but I can look at them and tell that
they have been used for what they were meant for.  Each one has a little
history behind it.  Some of which I will never know.
