The color could always be changed if one wanted to.


What I "hate" is the claim that the dryer is restored and works, followed by the suggestion that it could be used as a cooler.  That would ruin a working dryer, and working or not, you'd need a shop vac to get the water out of the drum.


Some people are just plain dumb.  That applies to the price they're asking as well.

Hmmm.... so we're not the only ones who aren't in love with this 'restored' dryer - this one had come up for sale a few times since last year...

I suspect in this case "restoration" included only a coat of paint, and nothing more.

The poor thing looks terrible in turquoise. I truly have my doubts that it works without issue.

It would look OK in the proper shade of Turquoise, but NOT in that overly intense one.

It is a little expensive

but if I were interested in getting one of these sets, or already had one, I would go get it just to have the parts out of it. If that was within a 100 miles of me I would definitely go get it (make an offer first)
