wire brush danger
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I almost did stupid things !!!

as I wanted to remove paint from a part, as I use to do, I first thought about the rotating wire brush, and I don't know why... I did not.
I took a chemical soot removal to remove the first coat of paint.
thankfully I did not brush I wouldn't have ever found this...

If I would have brushed the splash-guard the 3 layers of paint would have gone by the same way.
I think the logo is safe:smile:

Now, drying before correcting some details,
however I do not have to do too much, it's not a sticker.
I will also have to make a shadow around to soften the assembly logo/splash guard.

The only good use of a kitchen table - after French cooking of course! - what a great find and an even better save! - a lot of effort for such a small thing some may think but thanks to the likes of you Pascal for taking the time and trouble to save it - another little piece of history saved for the future!

Yes Mark my favorite table it's used for everything...:smile:

many thanks Hamish,
I am especially happy not to have missed it, it's a bit of work it's true, but it's worth it

I doubt that it is original Crossley fitment from the 1920s. They are still available for not much money:

Nice to save part of the engine's history though nevertheless.
