It's Friday again. Is this a thing today? I will not shave until late today.
I use mine just about everyday! Thanks to Chris over at razorplate.com it looks brand new again.

Yes, it’s a thing today. Thanks for the reminder. I’m going to use an adjustable later.
Great. I do not have an adjustable video. Probably knock one out today.
Fatboy Friday here in Perth 2day.
Awesome! See you later then!
Crap, I totally forgot about this again. Gotta remember this next week...........
I forgot too until @wchnu reminded me. Luckily I haven’t shaved yet.

So, yesterday I placed my D1 Red Dot Fatboy in a box to begin it's replating journey. The plan is to redo it in factory nickle....however, the idea of black rhodium (white numbers...or silver) is intriguing. I know, the shaving gods are displeased with the very thought.
I've got gold, rhodium, and nickle Gillette adjustable replates already. A D3 Fatboy in white rhodium and 2 toggles in original gold and nickle.
The D1 Red Dot Fatboy is somewhat rare. The purist in me says nickle. The oddball in me says black rhodium. Resale value, to me, is unimportant.
Beautiful, extraordinary, Gillette we love them. Enjoy LOOT. Congratulations

It is your razor so you must do what your heart says.... but since you asked, I would go with the nickel... keep it as original as possible.
Face & Head Shave
Pre-shave: hot shower and Nivea Men Sensitive Face Wash
Brush: Omega Boar 10049
Soap: VDH Luxury
Razor: Gillette Fatboy E-4 (set at #9)
Blade: Feather (4 or 5)

Great picture, great looking shave. You guys guys always impress with the photography.
I'll go Devil's Advocate; A Red Dot is already a Rare Beast. Please yourself. One day someone else will treasure it. They can have the plating stripped and go back Original Style should they choose.
1959 (E-4) #195 with the rest of the set up listed here, shave report here.
Thank you, @LOOT. I feel honored to be included in that since there are so many good photographers on here... including you. Your Fatboy and Toggles photos are outstanding!
That is a gorgeous Fatboy, James. I'm curious what year / quarter it is?
I think I see an "F"
