Cleaning Thorn Beta 5

Post by halowraith1 » Mon Apr 19, 2021 14:01

Hi guys,

I just received a MK16 Thorn Beta 5 I bought off ebay. It's a bit grubby, so I'd like to clean it up a bit before installing it outside. What's the best way to clean up the lantern and bowl?

Cheers,

J

If the aluminium canopy is in decent shape then I polish it with wire wool to give a natural silvery effect which is how I did the lantern in my avatar. If it's rough then I spray it with silver paint. Bowls just need a clean with soapy water. Any yellowing will be impossible to remove unless it's a rust stain. There are some bowls for sale on ebay.
How would you like your grade separations, Sir?
Big and complex.
