Recently acquired an Invader 200 in decent cosmetic and electrical condition. It works on some bands, but needs some tweaking (alignment, neutralization, etc). It is in nice overall condition, so I am inclined to bring it up a few notches. I understand  this transmitter is not exactly a paragon of technical virtue, but because I have a background with the EFJ Company, I am motivated to see what I can make of it. Some items I am looking for:

1. Touch up paint for the cabinet: gray wrinkle finish. There are a few small chips here and there that need touch up. I can likely replicate the wrinkle part if I can get some paint of the correct color. Worst case, I can mix some, but if it is available from others, will save some hassle.
2. Feet for cabinet: I can find feet that will work, but original (or reproduction) preferred. Possibly same feet used on other EFJ equipment?
3. Restoration/repair services: pretty sure I can handle this, but just in case!
4. Uninstalled upgrade kit to convert I 200 to I 2000. Mission impossible most likely, but just maybe ...  Would also consider purchasing a complete I 2000 in superb condition.

Any pointers/links to these items greatly appreciated.
