    Nice blue paint eh!!!!, I used an electrolysis tank to remove the paint and rust. Can't show those pictures as they are too large. Burners are bare cast just buffed up. Case got some body work, primed and painted high gloss black, 1200 degrees. Any shiny metal you see is buffed up and clear coated. I think it adds a bit of contrast with the black. I have only ever seen one more of these - that one is original with a complete oven. Last shot is it making nice blue flames. Hope you enjoyed my restoration

    Hi, Jan,

    Excellent work, and lovely result!! I do believe that I have a Coleman 2A, somewhere down in the Hobbit Hole, but it most certainly doesn't look THAT nice, when compared to yours!! 8) :thumbup: :clap: :D Thanks for sharing, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Yep, that's an unbelievable restoration Jan.

    It came out looking great. Love the flames! They are perfect.

    Did you make a stencil for the logo on the tank?

    Hi Jan, congratulations on a first class and stunning restoration. It has come out brilliant, in fact it looks like it has just been taken out of its original packaging for the first time.

    Thanks guys. I like working on these old classics, two more to go. Sam, yes I cut my own stencil, it's not perfect but it does the job. Doc, if you ever dig out that stove, a picture would be great. I do know that Coleman 2A is also stenciled on the lid. Merry Christmas everyone.

    Just an update, was at a gathering last weekend and picked up a complete oven for the stove so once the weather warms up I will work some magic on the sheet metal and also picked up GASP!!!!!!!!! 4 more stoves.
