i like beater xmetal frames scuffs, scratches, as long as they are not bent. They look "real", worn in, and have, "battlewear". I guess it is like if some is brandishing a gun that is in good shape but you can tell has been used versus a shiny pretty one, be afraid of the used one more since it has had more practice... Anyway, got some xx's from some awesome forum members and am gonna make 'em face-n-case worthy. all creamy first gen orbital frames. just got out if their much needed baths more pics to follow as progress ensues.
