Making a pony look near minty and new is my favorite part about collecting. Please post some of your before and after pictures. I am suppose to be getting a batch of ponies next week so this will prevent me from buying more ponies to clean during my wait Poke Tounge Feel free to describe what you did to make your pony look so nice.

Snowdrop was my first restore and she is still the rustiest pony I've ever had to clean. I used acetone to scrub away the rust inside her and worked and worked and worked on her hair (shampoo and condition, repeat).

Raincurl needed a new ear and I made her one out of Apoxie Sculpt. She also had holes in her feet that I fixed too. Then I rehaired her and Ringlet and gave them straw curls.

I'm bad at taking before pics Sad I've done a bunch of ponies that I wish I had photos of prior to fixing them up.

I just love seeing the amazing work people do on restorations in threads like these! I've got a few major projects in progress but only some of my easier cases have been photodocumented.

All this was was hours of work brushing out the hair, then washing and leaving the conditioner in for a couple of days. What these pictures don't show is the dramatic difference in the texture of her hair. Before she was stiff and scratchy feeling, after she was so soft to play with.

BlackCurtains- Raincurl went through such a dramatic change! I think most people would have called that pony a lost cause but you made an amazing transformation. I really like the reforming of the ear. I would have never thought something like that was possible. Your pics were very nice by the way Smile

BabyIceCrystal- Wow, detinsiling is another thing I never would have thought of for G3s. It made so much of a difference. No wonder why you are so proud of her. And Bangles looked amazing too. I can't believe the silky and bright hair actually survived the cleaning process.

Wow! Nice restorations! I'd like to learn how to rehair ponies, because I have a lot with some major hair issues.

Noooooooooooooooooooo! *hides ponies* Those are childhood ponies!!!!! No bait box for them!!!!! Banana Surprise was sunfaded (I got her from Goodwill that way when I was a kid, even then I couldn't leave behind a pony). Sweet Stuff just has a paint patch.
