Mine is a 9 ft D-C model too! Some previous owner painted the walnut rails, apron skirts, and legs baby-poop brown though, so a restoration effort is underway. First, the cast anodized aluminum pockets are being resurfaced and hardcoated (was tempted to get them anodized black, but resisted the urge). Next up is to get rid of that paint! Thinking Danish teak oil depending on how the walnut looks after stripping.
