At that price it would be worth giving it a new paint make over.
Agreed. There is an old thread that provides info on the exact match spray paint that is available off the shelf.
When this scope was first posted a couple weeks ago, it prompted me to get my Alcor out...first time in an year or two. I have used it every night since and it is an amazing performer. I can wait to gift it to one of my grand kids some day.
