Gutter trim & rear bezels resto

Post by Keith Halstead » Thu Jul 11, 2019 7:45 pm

Thanks to Russell Lord for doing some stirling restoration on some very bent rear bezels for me. As you know these are becoming difficult to source & we all have a pile of damaged ones which are beyond our capabilities. Russell being a jeweller from Shenfield Essex has the skills & tools to recover these to go again. See before & after pics. As well as his jewellery business he is offering to help members with resto work on roof gutter trims & rear bezels. See his Facebook page Russell lords ford or email Russell@lordoflondon.com

Hello Keith,

I've just stumbled upon one of my original bezels. Could you let me know how much it cost you? I don't think mine is any worse than yours was.

Regards.

He asked for a 'donation' to his charity box in the shop, so whatever it's worth to you is the answer I guess.

Thank's Keith. I would say there's a lot of skill involved so I wouldn't expect it to be cheap but have no idea what something like this should cost. Any idea of a ball park figure? I'd want to pay what it's worth.

I would say , depending on condition, £20 - £40 should do.
