It's possible that I love restoring ponies as much as I love customizing them! And that is saying quite a bit! Happy Pony Seeing those poor pitiful things turned into shining jewels! I love a good pony make-over! They just make me feel all warm inside! Poke Tounge

So let's see what you've got!! Show me your best restorations!!

Here's the girl that this thread is in honor of, UK DazzleGlow who just recently joined my herd out of Canada! She's very happy to be here!! My ponies have made her feel quite at home on the River!! heart

This is the only one I've taken a before and after photo of, but I've cleaned up a lot of ponies in the past. Smile This Baby Gusty had a terrible haircut, so I gave her mane some new Dolly Hair.

Here's my last restoration: Spanish baby Lemon Drop! She has already been rehaired by her owner. This pony had a terrific story to tell, that ended when she fell in a chimney ember Sad

I have nothing to post, but does anyone think they could attempt restoring a baby saphire? I have one that is practically bait. her hair is frizzed and tinsel is pretty much gone, her eyes and symbols are barely there, and her body is discoloured. poor girl. shes the only jewelry baby i need, and well, i just feel so bad for this girl.

Oh I just love to see restored ponys! It's so wonderful when you can find a totally ugly rejected pony, and make it beautiful. If I had the cash I'd totally be a pony "flipper"
Not that I'd rip people off, but more like a house flipper, buy ugly old ones, and then make them pretty and sell them to someone as a lovely new lovable pony!

Rust, I suspect.
Rust is a nasty thing to clean. Very flaky.
The fact that she had such tail rust and frizzy hair, I think someone decided she'd be more interesting if she was waterlogged.

What do you guys use to clean the insides?

I have been slowly cleaning my G1 *supposed to be* baits and have been using filter cleaning brushes bought at the pet store in the fish department. They work really, really well to get down into the legs.

I should start taking before pictures. Some of these ponies I won't be able to bring myself to bait now because they look so good.
