Not a restoration, so much as a major cleanup job. I bought this Red Roses at the Fair this year thinking that I'd try to save her mane, and if it didn't work out, she could be a rehair project.
One thing I try to tell people when I talk about customizing, is to always clean your potential bait before you start taking her apart. There have been many times when I planned to use a pony for a custom only to find out that she cleaned up better than anticipated. Some have even ended up in my collection instead.
