As some of you know, I purchased a used graffiti speedy a few weeks ago. Since I started looking for one a two years ago, I was never able to find one in my price range for the condition I wanted, I decided to have all the vachetta replaced. It was bitter sweet to drop him off only hours after receiving him, but I knew that the quicker he left the sooner he'd come back. And yesterday I got the call to pick him up!!! Less than four weeks from the drop off! I was so surprised. ::drumroll please:: Here he is in all in all of his glory. My BF was shocked and said that it looked fake since the vachetta was so pale, since we both have never seen a Graffiti piece with little or no patina. I am very pleased with the results and hope that you find the before and after pics informative!
