my mom used to say.. "old pan makes good food!"
Well, as Moms usually are, I am sure she was talking about heat transfer from the pan base. Moms are reluctant to take credit and as a result transfer the credit elsewhere.

My theory is that Moms make good food in any pan, or wok or pot or... whatever...
:)

BTW, the same goes for photographs. I am not saying that the pan - oops, camera or lens does not count. The person behind counts more. Naturally, the ingredients count even more... :)

My Mom told me that if my camera is scratched that I should give it a heavy coat of industrial black paint and then put it in a pre-heated oven, set at 500 degrees for 29 mins.
Yup! Moms are always right. But don't be greedy and try to eat it the moment it comes out of the oven! Wait for it to cool ;)

"Hell, this '59 Fender Stratocaster must sound terrible. Should be repaired immediately.
-PW"

Hey PW,
Is that a real '59 or a Custom Shop relic? (For non-guitar geeks; real or factory fake?)
Guy.

Damn you're right! Should have picked that up myself. Had no idea there was a fake worn guitar market out there. I just did a search for images of heavily worn Strats for a playful post in this scratchy thread. There must be plenty of shots of beautifully worn genuine '59 Stratocasters or Telecasters around.

All this apart, I think battle scars need to be displayed and not filled in...

It's not perfect, but when I wear one of my cameras down to the white/translucent plastic, I go over it with a black sharpie.  Like touch up paint on a car, it's not perfect, but it's 90% better.

I don't think I've ever done it unless I was getting the camera ready for an eBay sale.
