    This was one that turned out a lot better than expected, underneath a lot of grime the paint was still good.
    After a good clean and fitting a washer kit, vapouriser and a new cage, it is once again a fine example of its type.
    Enjoy the pics. pl1.JPG pl2.JPG pl3.JPG pl4.JPG pl5.JPG pl6.JPG pl7.JPG pl8.JPG pl9.JPG

    This is what made Tilley. These are great lanterns. I have three of these and one PL55. So far, none of them have failed me.;)
