I'm new to the forum. My wife and I bought a 1978 boler
1300 a couple weeks ago in all original condition except for tires
and a 2 yr old fridge
. It was a single owner garage kept unit so in very good condition for its age.
We are planning on an almost full restore. I think we will likely leave the stuff that's in good condition alone but the rest is getting done.
1-Where I'm at now is dealing with the rust on the frame. Its just surface right so I'm using a rust inhibitor that turns the rust black then painting
with a rust paint
. Just curious if anyone thinks that may not be the way to go?
The rims are original and Ive painted them black but I want to get the hub caps shiny. They were painted gray. I'm in the process of sanding the paint
off then I want to buff them to a shine and coat them with something clear so they don't rust. Anyone got any tips for that process or products to buff/protect the shine?
thanks in advance!
I'm sure I'll have lots more questions.
