Claw foot tub

Okay I am thinking I am going to get this 5' 6" claw foot tub this weekend. List price $500

The guy said it is all original enamel and it doesn't look like it was really used in the home much so it is in great shape. I was seeing tubs in horrible shape for not much less than this and getting quotes for $300-$350 to refinish it (which I would really rather avoid as I have heard the finishes are not as durable as the original enamel) so I think this is a pretty fair price. Anything else I need to watch out for/ask about? I will make sure all the feet are the same and attached properly. I won't be using the shower part of the tub so I am not sure what holes I will need to plug to retrofit that.

Make sure the feet are of appropriate varying heights and you know which is which, or the thing won't drain.
