Picked up this Eco a few months back. Model #45- Wall mount version of the 40 series. Hose hook was broken when I bought it and it had 13 coats of paint on it. There were a few nests inside the meter. Needed some serious TLC. Still have a few odds and ends to do on the meter(Wire the light, get some little hardware pieces, ect.) Here are some before and after pics(some finger prints are show from the flash-but they are not in the finish). Made all new cork gaskets for the glass bezel and drain valve assy. Used almost all the original hardware. Enjoy!

Small area where the letters are were taped off-Painted them white- then taped all the letters-and painted red.
