63E91DC9-C8AB-4458-8E70-7271C16E6CAB.jpeg My wife sent a photo of this lantern she saw when out and about. It looks like a 220E CA flood-lite from the 1960s. Looks like someone painted green over the red and the red paint on the fount has worn off. Anyone know if I’m on the right track?

Donnie, I can't provide an answer as to exactly how that lantern was originally.
However, if you don't mind me saying, if your wife is actually helping you to acquire lanterns, you are most certainly on the right track!

Well, she didn’t bring it home.... but she is showing interest for sure. That’s a good thing.

Looks like a Canadian 220E vent and collar.

If it's not too much money I'd say go get it.

That isn't easy to find here. You may want to go get that one. Especially for that price!

I'm confused; that fount looks like a 200, or 24 oz. fount?  I've never see a 22X with any but a 32 oz.?

Further confusion - Wives that actually TELL you about stuff your interested in by they are not?  

I'm happy she just doesn't hassle me about my hobbies/habits. (not that it would matter)

Here it is! It’s a Canadian 220E 6 66 😬 I still bought it with those numbers..... someone did some custom painting a few years back but you can still see some of the original red paint, even behind the collar. I will be doing my first restoration attempt with this $20 find. I am open to all suggestions and recommendations as far as procedures and paint choices.

Nice, Donnie! Good job grabbing that one.

Oh, the sickness spreads very quickly. My wife has a better eye than I do when we go out and about. She tells me I'm nuts, but then says "Well, the little red ones are cute..."

Anyone have suggestions about how to remove the non-original paint from the vent without damaging the original red paint? It actually looks in good shape underneath the blue paint that someone painted on there.

The Vent is percaline so you have options.  I use a Simple Green soak as a paint remover routinely.

You can get it by the gallon for about 10 bucks  (I think at Home Depot?  possibly Lowes)

Cool find Donnie. I agree. You need to pay her a finders fee. And tell her to keep up the good work!

First step complete. Got all of the ugly blue paint off and gave the rest a quick clean up. Moving the rest of the progress over to the restoration thread.
