    Just completed my first mute restoration, and think it turned out pretty well. This mute was in pretty bad condition cosmetically, but structurally sound other than the tube, which I replaced with pvc pipe. Sorry, no before pics, but might be able to dig up one from the eBay auction from when I bought it.

    I need to restore mine. It's Dad's from the early '30's. At some point I painted it with a black marker. :bash:

    I had considered doing that, but my kids are always leaving the caps off of the sharpies.

    Seriously, the paint I used was actually Testor's Model paint, since I was already at the craft store to buy a sheet of cork. Lots of color options. I bet one of the model cars had some sweet flame decals I could have used. Next time, when I plan on keeping it, HOT ROD!
