    lately I have had very good luck finding Martin Maiers, thanks to a friend of mine Damon Swenson who saw this in Ohio, he knew it was relatively close to me so he put me on to it, it wasn't much to look at at first, but it was only 75 dollars and a little over two hours away, after I got it home and got the ugly yellow paint off of it, I realized its not a bad trunk, it needs a little TLC but I've worked on a lot worse. This is your typical 31 piece MM hardware and alligator tin, I like the alligator tin but wish I could find one in another tin pattern just once, most of the interior is here although very plain, but I think it will come out looking good when I'am done, thanks Damon.

      Hey man -- happy i could help out! It was way too far away from me, but I agree -- its in a lot better condition than what it initially appeared to be!

      As usual, I can't wait to see what you turn it into, I have no doubt it will be amazing!

      Another great find and Price!! you lucky greendog! Did you just use the nylon wheel on this to achieve the new look?

      No Tom,I used citristrip stripping gel, paint comes off pretty easy on metal.
