Finished this up today. It is a restoration for a friend and fellow collector, (his collection puts mine to shame), he wants to give this to his son. I sure wish this was mine as it is an absolute joy to cook on.

Well I'm off to deliver, I hope he is happy.

Also, a big thank you to Mr. Pagan for the advice on the paint color for the stove body, it could not be a more perfect match.

Wow!!!! Very well done!  It really came out great, it made my "gotta have" list!  Nice that you could save the original decal on the tank.  What did you use for the black...engine block enamel?  Doug

I ran across a HOT PLATE a few days ago in my travels.  It was priced at $60.  I may have pics on my phone.

On the stove top I used Rustoleum Ultra High Heat in semi gloss black, for the stove case I used Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy in Almond. If you have never tried these appliance paints you should, they spray great and the finish is unbelievable. Thank you,


Ben


(and sorry Glenn, already delivered )
