I restored this Homelite 7-29 from a running one as seen below. I do not plan on ever putting gas and oil in it as it is for displaying indoor now.
This took over 6 months to finish because these saw take a lot of work to make look this good. Finding new parts for this saw is very hard
and I was able to get the starter screen and the green rubber spark plug cover. Those could be the only ones left in existence.
The decals I made by painting the white part with a stencil and making a waterslide decal for the black part. I used an automotive base coat
over epoxy primer and after the decals were put on clear coated with a two part hardened clear so it should be fuel proof decals and all.
The internal governor was bypassed by some one else so I left it that way as it seamed to run good.  The aluminum handle bar was polished and
a clear powder coat was put on to protect from getting dull. Every screw was stripped and re-platted.


I put a new 44 in bar and chain on it. It could use a better resurfacing on the bar.

Below is how it looked  before I started the restoration.
