Who has sent their Paramount to Waterford?

I picked up an 88 waterford schwinn in May and have really enjoyed it. I'd like to take it up a notch and add a powermeter, however it might make sense to upgrade the drivetrain. So that got me thinking that it might be time to send her back to the factory for a refurb. Who has sent their paramount back? How was the service? If you could do it again what would you do differently?

My friend had his Dec. 1967 frame 1968 model Paramount repainted by Waterford. The also did some add ons like water bottle cage mounts. Best paint job I have ever seen. Roger

New paint and decals by Waterford, '87 Paramount with SLX, upgraded to 9-sp DA, including WH7700 wheelset.
The paint job was outstanding, and they sent the can of extra paint. I'd do it again if the situation presented itself.

That doesn't look like an '87 Paramount!

Waterford did a superb job with my 1940 Paramount.

Before (with ugly krinkle finish black spraypaint):
