    Great stove that now resists preheating :lol: :lol:

    The paint is car engine paint from the local hardware store that is heat resistant up to 800 degrees Celsius.

    With a priming cup so small I've never seen a used Phoebus that did not have the paint burned almost off.

    It's fuel resistant too? Many paints that I tested have only heat resistance - any amount of kerosene or gasoline and the paint is destroyed. :cry:

    It resists priming with gasoline as well :lol:
    In the picture I've cleaned the cup and see no damage :D/ (have done that a few times now :content: ). From the blackening on other parts you can see that gasoline was burning there :lol:

    The paint is branded "MOTIP". It was dirty, rusted, scratched and really needed restoration. I've cleaned the old scratched paint and the rust by electrolysis. I've chosen a more "contemporary" color and turned it into a sort of mystery stove (to the untrained eye, that is 8) ).
    Next weekend I'll go camping and still need to decide which stove(s) to bring [-( .
