I agree vikki,

I do try to over do sometimes I think as I see a bad photo and think it should look like it was taken yesterday.

I spend a lot of time on it and get frustrated when it doesn't clean up perfect.

Thanks for the input DJ,

Unfortunately the customer is only willing to pay around $30 and I don't think this would qualify as a $30 job...not for me anyway.

I'll probably restore it in my spare time...ha ha ha.... just to get some experience under my belt using the different methods talked about in this thread.

Before I read any of the responses, I looked at the photo (yes, I can now see it ). My first thought was "Gee, I like the cracked look! It has "age" written all over it!" Maybe tone it down a bit like Tom suggested, but if it belonged to me, the cracks would be preserved somewhat. Just my nickel. (inflation)
