I didn't subscribe to this thread for some reason so I missed the discussion... yeah i am not going to send a $100 SQR out for screen printing that costs more than that...

Hi Fred!
No I haven't got to it yet (still got to do the electrical restoration stuff first on the SH-09) but I'm liking the powder coating and screen printing approach a lot! It looks great and authentic which is what I'm after. I think this would be a good option for SH-09 as it's just a black metal case and one colour for the graphics.

I restored my Moog Prodigy a few years ago but fortunately the paint work was still really good and it didn't need repainting. The wooden panels were in bad shape though, so I spent ages rubbing them down to get a super smooth finish, stained them and then put a protective lacquer on. It turned out superb :D real furniture quality finish! So I've got the bug now ;)
