Very nice. Jman - Nice custom fish on the 704.
I'm guessing the drilling was done by you.

Default Re: Penn Restoration > Paint Colors

Hello, Has anyone ever really researched the proper paint color of Greenies? Thinking of taking mine to a auto paint store or body shop to get the paint match. Also after painting does any body know of baking the reel with new paint in a oven of what temperature and how long? I have the facilities to do my own work. Just need proper info. thanks Ripper

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the reel restorer, Chuck Hell, was a member here but I don't remember his user ID. Has anyone here heard from him lately? His site has been down, I'm not buying that he just went out of business or is away on his other job and not getting back to anyone about their reels.
I know that he had some health problems last year and I'm leaning towards that being the problem. Does anyone here stay in touch on more than a business level with him and know what happened to him? I hope everything is okay he's a nice person and a true artist. Thanks for any info.

Jim,
Thanks for the info. A friend lives down in Crystal River and is going to take the ride over to Chucks later in the week to do a welfare check on him. I'll let you know if I hear anything. Hope everythings okay.

Still no updates on Chuck Hell, has anyone on this site heard anything? Sure do hope he's okay, it's not like him to dissappear for this long.

Mine needed restoring, so here it is. I went right through it and replaced anything that was worn and then some. Tried to match the original color and used a Urethane paint. The surface is real hard, and will fully harden before the fish return. I'll see how she holds up...

Too bad,
I had a feeling it was something bad.
Rickski -
question on the side plate on your reel; are the plates with the emblems
from newer versions?
I have one of the ones with the 'swoops' on the plate.
Love to restore the plate; but that looks like a really tough paint job.

Anyone ever try it?

Also, my white torpedo handle is loose. it's the piece between the torpedo and the handle itself.
Can this part of the handle be disassembled?
Can it be tightened up?

This will be my winter project [along with trying my hand at some wooden
pencils and darters.

Got to have some projects on hand for the snowy season. LOL

Later
Jay

The side plate with emblem came out after the side plate with swirls. I've seen one with the swirl restored and it looked good, but I bet it took some time to get it right.

The knob post is stamped into the handle. If it's loose, material got grinded off. Only thing to do is drill it out and replace the torpedo with a power knob.

I know it's out of date but if it still helps it seems that you still have primer on that reel. I did the same thing and it started chipping right away. I put a wire brush on it and cleaned it to the bare metal.
