Wow!  Im nearing completion of a 1970 redhead myself. How did you do your lid vent on this lime @rub?

That lime is stunning.  Nice job. The photo composition makes the lime look like it wants to jump off my PC screen.  What kind of camera was used @Rub ?

BTW,  one of these photos should grace the 2019 WKC calendar.
Thanks Jim. I actually used my iPhone 8+. It has "Portrait Mode" which focuses on the main subject and soft focuses the rest.


@Neil_VT00 not much for before pics. The lid and bowl were in nice shape. The legs and vent were the typical oxidized look and they cleaned up great.


 


Leg comparison:


@robs2 I used a product @Cellar2ful turned me onto called Supra90. Does a fantastic job.

@rub, did you apply that supra90 same as you would any other metal polish? Did you use it on the legs as well?

Yes and yes. I probably should have sanded the legs to smooth out the nicks. I guess that'll be for a later date.
