Default Re: I found it !. A very sorry looking MK14

I think if you were to fit it with a repro board and use it actively again (restoring the MK14 as a standalone unit) it would be OK to paint it. If you intend it to house the original still then it should be left as is - that is what any museum would do after stabilizing the paintwork to prevent further degradation. As Slothie says the history of a piece is written in the wear it has received until the point it is preserved and ceases to be a daily used item.
