Default Combination rollers

Kurt, the rollers first came to my knowledge when a certain member went to CW and inventoried, photographed then posted pictures of the discoveries he found. Carl had brand new combo rollers still in the bags and in a matter of days they were all gone. I acted very quickly on getting 10 only to find out someone bought everyone of them. Mike Stevens did shop the used ones for me after the fact, but only sourced a very few good ones. I bought a 1965 Superior also just to get those rollers but was greatly disappointed to find most all of them were rusted, frozen up, rubber from the rollers dried up and broken off, etc.So after attempting restoring what I currently have for rollers, what I have still looks so sub-standard featured against the $450.00 black Mercedes Benz short pile wool carpetting I bought to restore the compartment floor. So CW knows who they were sold to but swore not to disclose who bought them. The extreme pitting and deep scratches I tried polishing out on a buffer just got me some pitted chrome and brass colored rollers with bright scratches as a result.
