fifties50s
(372 items)

I bought nearly one year ago a King candy machine from 1930-1940's, but it was badly restored, many lack of paint, scratches, decals wrongly placed, mechanism blocked,... so some months ago I decided to go on and I sanded every pieced by hand, primed them and I painted them this week in carmin red, I decided to removed the paint on the ornament around the mirror as they were in aluminum and I polished them

after some months the machine is all done and it's exactly like I wanted, It's not a restoration or a theme machine but I prefer it in this color, Now I could see if I can find a "fresh candy" decal for the side but for the moment I really love the way it looks

I took me many time to get a clean job and I love the result

the last pic is the machine before
