As part of the upgrade of your regulator we do a cosmetic clean up of the case before we install our solid-state digital upgrade. While all regulators may not turn out looking "factory new" most can be cleaned up to look period correct.

Check out the photos below to see how a recent regulator upgrade turned out.

Upgraded regulator vintagemecha-tronics  As you can see, the upgrade to our solid-state digital version is completely transparent when the cover is installed. No one will know that you have an upgraded regulator installed.
