These decks were actually in fine condition when they were brought to me. Even the original frame was in good shape with very few minor scratches. The owner, Dodie Liwanag, an audiophile and lives in an island (Mindoro) about 250km from Manila traveled all the way to my place to have this customized to white. I called it "immaculate white" because aside from the main body frame, tone arm section and headshell finished in bright white paint, all the lights are replaced with bright white LEDs. I also buffed and polished the dust cover to make them look new again because it had so many scratches and swirl marks before.
