I wonder why this idea hasn't been invented in the Golden Age of typewriters. Today, there are thousands of possibilities of making your devices "unique", e.g. wallpapers, 'themes', cases etc.
I'm all in favor of "hotrodding" or "modding" common typewriters. Some of their paint schemes don't turn me on, but I am drooling over the chrome-plated Smith-Corona, "The Ghost."
Thanks, Richard ; ) - Chase from Kasbah Modps. That horrific green-and-yellow John Deere branded typewriter is NOT from Kasbah Mod.
Agree with Richard. "The Ghost" is heart-stoppingly beautiful.
...thinks...wonder how much it would cost to get my stripped Underwod chromed? Half the work's done already...
Hi Rob. In Australia, somewhere between $350 and $400.PS: I made it abudantly clear the John Deere was on eBay (not Kasbah Mod). I don't see the slightest bit of difference between the John Deere and Kasbah Mod typewriters - all fine paint jobs in my eyes.
I think folks in the olden days didn't think about modding their typers because they weren't collecting -- they were too busy getting work done on them! I know it never crossed my mind to diddle my big Royal Empress. I was too busy pounding out unproduced plays and unpublished stories (some did get produced and published much, much later).
