I got this Conion last year and it was beat up and covered in stickers, but it still thumps!
I took the stickers off to restore it and can't decide on a color.. too many choices on my shelf!
Started sanding the top and sides tonight, and did some doodling on the woofer grilles..
I have a couple other C-100s that will get painted someday, but this one I want you wonderful member's to help pick the color! :yes:

Pearl or a gloss black. I've seen all the graffiti (including my own) boxes I care to see. Seeing something tasteful would be nice. And it'd be different. I love Conions and would like to see something nice happen to this one.

+1 on the Pearl White. The Conion would look all class in that colour if it was done right. :drool:

Have fun!

Two tone flat black and gun metal grey and keep the aluminum faceplate. I've been dying to do that with my pos. I think it will look sick!

Well, the VU meters lense will polish out nicely.. but, the tuner window has yellowed almost the whole thing! :-/ I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.. :hmmm:
There is a bit of paint overspray on this unit which has formed a protective coating on a lot of the parts..
I polished up the side of one of the protector bars and it had a mirror shine! :yes:
THe main issue of repair is fixing the broken feet and one of the antenna hold downs..

On a related note, I went to the hardware store the other day and found all the screws needed for the back casing! They are threaded all the way down compared to half-threaded like the originals..

It used to be ACE, but then a midwest chain bought them out: Bomgaars.. But still the same stuff!
The screws were 8 x something, 3 long maybe.. 8 x 3 or 8 x 2

Looks like Pearl White it is! :thumbsup: Thanks for the votes everyone! :yes:

I find this a tiny bit amusing, because Pearl White is the first and only idea I had a couple months ago to paint it... :-D (no joke)
Looks like I would've had a winner if I just stuck to my gut feeling.. :hmmm:
The feet need to be fixed first, but I should start the resto pretty soon.. :angelic:

Here is some motorcycle pieces I painted Snowwhite Pearl by House of Kolor, this is without clearcoat.. I don't have any more on the shelf, so I will have to get some.. or there is a new Pearl white out by House of Kolor I might have to try.. Can't wait to clean this beauty up!

I did the same thing with mine. It was missing 3 screws.
I think the Pearl White will look awesome. Do you plan on going lighter with the tuner dial backing?
Can't wait to see how this goes.

Yes, on my Korean Conion I stripped the blue off the tuner backplate then polished the bare aluminum for a chrome look..numbers still light up in white!
