We've been told that most restoration services won't attempt restoring those old big black fiber case wardrobe trunks and, while they certainly present unique challenges, we've taken on quite a few lately and with great results. Usually the large surface areas are pretty banged up, dented and torn so re-creating that original finish poses some problems. Putty, plastics and paint have been our answer to these flaws and, in most cases (no pun, sorry) you can't tell just how horrible it looked when entering our shop. We've also been converting quite a few of these old beasts into bar trunks and those have been fun to get creative with. Those projects we generally wait until after 5 to start working on!
