Hi,

 

The Eagle C-15 cassette appears to have screws on it, I assume they easily open up?

 

I was thinking of buying one to open and painting the reels silver or whatever, it's just for show.

Be careful.  The actual "reel" is a very thin metal (maybe aluminum?).  The likelihood of bending them when removing is very high.  I speak from experience on that.  :yes:

 

I would just wait until a silver reel cassette came along.

Ah well, I'll keep an eye out for something.

 

Thanks.
