  1. Poll: Re: 1953 Colchester Student Mk1 6" gap bed - A restoration project

    Questions are always welcome @JohnnoK.

    There are two ways. The first is to keep the surfaces oiled. The second is to coat the items with a clear top coat. I am leaning towards a 2K type clear top...

    Thanks, I checked it out today and it is not what I am looking for. It does the wrinkles not the dots style ... what I did manage to find is that you need to reduce your gun's air pressure to very...

    Yep, original single coat direct on aluminium. It must be some kind of etching primer that forms the little hills when drying. Or painted using a lot of air through the nozzle. I have never seen...

    Unfortunately it is not crackle paint. If you look at this photo you will see what I mean. It looks like sandpaper with spiky points.

    Thanks @Spiceman, munch appreciated ;-)

    Yep, I first tried soda blasting, but the paint is too hard for the soda to be effectively removed. So, the next step up from that is wind blown dune sand....

    Re: Grey water to clear water, non commercial

    Thanks @BumperD. I will get a cup of coffee and digest this.

    Just watch the Pedrollo pump's impeller. My first version had the same and the greywater bacteria ate it away. I only use Wilo now.
