They all start pretty much the same, a good buy on eBay then the wait time wondering if your investment will require little to no time to turn around or if it will be a time suck. This little beauty came in today and was in 5/10 shape. No major issues, little corrosion and mostly just old grease and staining. After breaking it down and soaking it in CLR and Simply Green and some scrubbing and rubbing. I think I have a winner! The 1/0 are hard to come by in this shape.
