    Mahlkonig guatemala - to paint or not...

    I just invested in a guatemala bulk/retail grinder. Great machine. Only letdown is the battered up copper paint. What do you say? Paint it or leave it retro, beauty on the inside style?

    The casing is plastic and not metal. That limits some of the of the options of respraying it

    For a first restauration project I'm pleased with it. Although fitting the motor back in was tricky...

    Alexpid, I know this post was over a year ago, but, do you recall what all you did to repaint the Guatemala? I have the same machine, same color, same dinged up paint. Any info you can share would be super helpful. Cheers!
