      Very nice! I have a Pepsi one. From the pics they both look pretty good. The Coke kinda looks like it might have been repainted once. I personally would not refinish them. I like the old look. But that's just me. For future resale, original condition is best. Thanx for sharin!

      Nice, eh ! And I wouldn't refinish either. No matter how good a restoration is, it still shows to the real collectors. Is there a recognized old Coke sign/cooler red paint ?
    3. Canuck, 6 years ago
      Not sure about a recognized red paint but if you look at my other items I have a cooler that I had redone which looks close but I'm not sure if it is a red just for coke

      Just yanking your chain, eh ! You can never match that colour exactly !

      Thought it was strange but not the worst I've ever been asked

      Hey! I'm a purist ! If I can't restore something without it showing, I figure it's best left alone. Problem with doing it right, always means stripping the whole bloody thing ! Bon chance.

      Welcome to CW.
      As nice as those are I would not mess with them.

      That's the way I'm leaning.
