Nice grab!!  I just bought a pair of HII's and one had water damage on the bottom for $350.  Cleaned up pretty well.  If you're looking at refinishing the veneer, I presume they're veneered, it's only about 1/32" thick.  I refinished the bottom of the one with damage and replaced a missing piece of veneer (how I know the thickness).  Surprisingly, they will take a bit of sanding.  Just be careful to not sand through.

 

Crites has some good upgrade goodies for these.  I'd go with the tweet diaphragms, cap upgrade, and slanted risers.

Repaired bottom.  Color matching was a bit of a chore, but fun.  Haven't finished over the stain yet.  Someone said they used 'tung oil'.  I may just go for a 'tung oil' variant.  Anyway, hope this gives you some ideas.  Again, sweet find.
