Default Penn Peer 209 - worth reconditioning?

I have inherited my father fishing gear including 8 Penn Peer 209's. The good news is they have only been used fishing for salmon on Lake Ontario, the bad news is they are a bit oxidized (see pics). They seem to be in decent working order. My question is can the oxidation be reversed and is it even worth the effort?. These reels date back as far as I can remember and I have some sentimental value. Alantani - whats it cost to refurbish these babies?

sorry - couldn't post pics in this forum...they are over in the photos forum here:

most shops will charge $15-25 per reel, plus the cost of parts. you can clean them up nicely with lime away clr. it contains phosphoric acid and works great to remove the green "patina." brush it on carefully, let it sit for 3 hours, then rinse. an overnight application is probably ok as well, but i've always just waited 3 hours. send me a pm if you'd like me to take a look at them. thanks! alan
