It was covered in rust when I found it but after some elbow grease and new appliance paint now it looks great! The ratties do love it also. They tend to spend all their time on the top shelf and run all the way down to the bottom to potty. It's the ONLY cage that they will designate a bathroom area. In the other cages they just go where ever, it's like a free for all.
I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to repair it or not but for $25 I thought I had better give it a shot. I see similar cages for over $150 in shops and from private sellers. I use some brillo pads and bleach to scrub it and then got some appliance paint from walmart to repaint it. It took a few coats of paint but I got almost every spot of rust gone/covered.
And it was pretty easy to get back into shape. The hardest part was waiting for the paint to dry all the way before applying more coats and then finally giving it to the rats. I think I had the cage for about 6 weeks+ before I was finally satisfied enough to put them in it.
