Think of it as rare and precious as a pre-CBS Fender. There are some rough and kind of ugly looking pre-CBS bodies out there. If the pickups, tuners, neck and everything else works and you don't want a fugly period candy apple red, white, or black that's wearing away to show metallic silver or white giving way to a brown sunburst underneath, then get another brand new strat body in candy apple red (or preferred solid color) and put away the original for safekeeping.
Players may balk at the ugliness of worn out Fenders with lazy solid color factory oversprays over brown sunburst strats which is an eyesore, but collectors pay a pretty good penny for those.
Keep the less than perfect original chrome JS, no matter how ugly it gets and get another JS body you can use on the guitar with rechromed body you can refinish over and over at your heart's delight.
Anyway, if you think the rare but typically flawed chrome is ugly on the JS, check this out:
