Nothing suits alps switches better than an original alps chassis. Especially one with a metal base like an Omnikey. ;)

Honestly I think you should fill, etch prime and paint it to be close to it's original glory, I personally feel like I would never be quite satisfied with it left oxidised when it could easily be fixed! :)
