Unfortunately I had to sacrifice the lighting instructions they had rust forming in the cracks.i have a logo sticker on the way and will probably call it good. For like $30 all in I am pretty happy with it and fun also

Thanks I have noticed your handle on here I assume you are in to Scouts. Those were some of the best days I remember as a kid. Funnily enough  I remember my dad and the scoutmaster joking about which was better dads 413 or the scoutmasters 425 and now I have one of both hehe

Good cleanup.  The 425 is a pretty handy stove.  Now that you have both a 413 and a 425, whose side will you take, your dad's or your scoutmaster's?

Your stove looks good after the work you put in to it . 
The 425E is the only Coleman double burner suitcase stove I’ve come across so is obviously my favourite.

Thanks I put the new sticker on last night and did a test run. The lack of a fireball meet my wife’s approval so it’s cleared to go camping with us 😁

Yes, I am definitely into Scouts, Bumpkin.  Eagle myself, 35 year volunteer with 10 of those as a Scoutmaster.  2 Eagle sons, Philmont, 2 national and 1 world Jamboree, etc.  The BSA is hands down the finest values and confidence training organization outside of the church.

I agree the values I learned in Scouts and Church Have served me well. Me and my Brother made Eagle. dad was the assistant Scoutmaster. And the full Scoutmaster was one of the finest men I have ever known. My brother was visiting from Florida and we went to a local state park for some hiking and ran into him and his wife he is up in years and has cancer by the time we were done reminiscing we were all fighting back the tears. I am sure there are several young men who will appreciate your time but may only realize when they get older . So thank you from VA for your time.

Couple questions: 
  1. how did you paint around the chrome?
  2. did you have rust issues in the tank?
  3. what paint and process would you recommend?
thanks!

Nice 425! She will be good to go camping now. Stoves are defiantly a labor intensive job. I just finished a 426D myself. Great job! 

We would like to know a little more on the restore job you did. Condition of the tank? Paint used?

Hello and welcome to the CCF, Ace.  I can't speak for Lee, but here is how I handle your 1 and 3.

1. - Just mask off the shiny parts with masking tape or painter's tape.  I gently pry up the clips that hold the side wings on to remove them for painting.  This makes it much easier to paint both the wings and the lid.  You don't have to pry much, just enough to slip the thin wire on the wing under the clip.  After painting, you can re-install and gently tap the clips closed while supporting the lid on a padded surface.

 3. - Lots of folks here use Rustoleum gloss Hunter Green.  It's a pretty good match for the 1950's through 1980's stoves.  Prep is important.  Strip all the old paint down to bare metal and degrease.  Some guys prime before color coats and some don't.  Apply paint following directions on can.  If you are painting outside, choose a day with low wind and low humidity. 

You can sand and wet sand as much as your patience allows to get as glossy a finish as you want.

Good luck.  Stoves take a lot of time to re-do right.

 @Ace ,, I used an assortment of sizes of wire wheels to remove rust from inside corners, even helped on the radius edges. I also used different grit sanding disk's on my orbital sander for the flatter surfaces. I did use Rustoleum primer on the wings,lid and stove case. The Rustoleum gloss hunter green is a great match. I used Rustoleum Gloss cherry red on my tank. It matched the tank on my 59' 425B very well. Anything near open flame or heat ( burner frames and drip try or heat shield ) I used VHT primer and VHT ceramic paint, follow the cans instructions. I drilled out the rivets on the latches and handle and painted them separately, I used Dupli-color Ford metallic silver. After painted I used aluminum pop rivets to reattach them. Like BSAGuy said stoves a labor intensive so take your time, the end results are worth it.

I basically did what Ken said. My silver parts were rusty so I painted with VHT. I reattached with small screws and nuts. My colors were emerald green this one was one of the early greens which seem to a lighter shade. The tank I used regal red from rustoleum
