We've come a long, long way together

Foul weather halted my planned work today on the Commer. Instead, I've had a proper ferret in the loft and finally found my 'lost' box of NOS goodies, more gems await :cool:

Looked at various options to reblacken - hot air gun, olive oil, peanut butter but went for some 'Solution Finish', will post the result

Now that's what I'd call a result :cool:

A doddle to apply, leave to soak and buff off - it leaves a lovely low sheen finish with minimal effort.

Big question is how long it lasts before it needs doing again ...

Finally found it !!!
After turning my loft upside down, twice - I stumbled across it in my shed today looking for something else entirely.
NOS its accumulated a little surface rust but should still be good for years yet, being such a state of the art design ;)

I might not be sticking with complete originality, the bulbous ends were always a complete pain to access and squeeze :eek:
I'm unlikely to find another decent air box as they all rot out due to a lack of squeezing, so needing to come up with an alternative that baffles the upwards air flow but still drains the water away.
