Hello!
I've been lurking here for a few weeks now. In that time I've picked up 6 lanterns and 3 stoves! Most of them need quite a bit of work. One lantern and stove are particularly rusty.

I started with a Peak1 400 backpack stove from boy scouts in the late 80's. I still have it. My pop gave me his model 222 lantern some years ago which I forgot I had. I'm looking forward to firing both of them up soon.

I've spent a lot of time reading about how to repair and repaint some of my finds. Now I really want to find a 200a lantern! 

I'm 43. I live in Orange, CA. I work in IT. I enjoy tinkering with wood and metal. I reload my own ammo and ride a motorcycle sometimes. I am also born again!

Like you, I also enjoy working with wood & metal, reload a number of different calibers, enjoy riding, and if you look at my signature line, you may see something you understand. ✝

Welcome to the forum from Arizona.
I see that you have been researching repainting and restoring your Coleman finds, but let me say that a good option might be to first, to consider,
Disassemble and clean all components completely.

polish the fount with Mother’s POLISH, or your favorite auto polish.

check the function of all the parts for cracks, wear, etc.

replace any broken or damaged parts.
fill the lantern with fresh fuel a new mantle and light it up. 

take a few pictures of the project and post them to this forum, (we love pics, Especially lit).

this will give you a “dress rehearsal” so-to-speak for assembly.

Bond with your original project for the evening.

THEN, in the morning, if you are dissatisfied with it and you can’t stand it’s scratches, dents, it’s history, and the previous life it has led, then by all means,  take it back apart and grab the sandpaper, but  Remember,  It is only original once, and can never come back. Your Original CAN be restored, but once Restored it’s a one-way ride.

Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.

Such nice people here!
 It seems any topic I can think of there are many threads already about it. I've spent a ton of time reading.
I appreciate all the advice. Good point about leaving them alone. I'm OCD about orange rust though. Guess could just oil it...or bead blast. Will post a picture of my finds.
