Stripped off lugs and all other hardware....mostly in good shape....pretty sure this blue was a repaint.....if there was an original laminate wrap to begin with or clear coat shell.?
Sounds awesome...do not have money for restore......prob should use Paint thinner to remove blue?
Havent decided....awful wall paper was covering bearing edge?

Get some citrus strip from Home Depot.....it will easily take off the paint and gunk. Use blue painters tape inside on all holes. Let it soak overniye, then Use a plastic scraper. Let it then dry overnite..... then sand it. Looks like a fun project! What finish are you thinking about?

That should clean up beautifully. It definitely looks like someone repainted at some point, so no harm no foul in stripping and refinishing. Careful sand an maybe put on a Danish Oil. Polish the hardware and you will have a beautiful instrument.
