Oh yes - decided to take the day off and do a little Birthday restoration project. In fairness I did start it last night, but hope to have it back together for the end of the day. just waiting for the missus to go out so I can spray-paint the base! Here is a "before" pic.

I think I may be guilty of hi-jacking my own thread here - but - hey - what's not to like. I am having a great day, buoyed up and always inspired by your good wishes and we get a "resto" into the bargain too! So, this SEL 1350 came with my Titan steam plant, but was in need of a face lift.

After stripping her down here was the sum of parts - in particular the base needed attention, and there were HUGE scorch marks under the boiler too.

I had to use some of my very fine profiled 3M sanding pads to get rid of the stains then polished out the inevitable scratches on my disc polishing wheel, attached to my pillar drill. Anyhow - more later - time to open the bar!!!

HIC!

PS - thanks for your wishes MR MAMOD too!

Well  - I am staying relatively sober Mr Mamod as on one of my few days off I really wanted to get the SEL1350 sorted, and here is the progress - in just ONE DAY!
