    Greeting fellow followers of light

    A little project that started last week

    Big up to Phil B for the loan of the needle pricker
    Alas the Po thought it wise to sharpen with a wet stone

    Glass is cracked but is whole

    Seems some sort of epoxy was used

    Hopefully will get the check valve sorted this week

    All parts soaked and cleaned up

    Seems the hood had a little home job of some weird red/ brown paint

    This cleaned up well thru the soak and scrubs

    Font has been cleaned by the Po
    At least the decal was left

    This might stay as is or i might nlock the origibal in a black frame and redo the font with a silver /grey colour match as close as possible

    Quite like the general patena

    Hereon arrival nice and crusty

    Would that not be the PO? - but even that's not a standard abbreviation as podbros alludes.

    In the UK, a po is a baby name for an infant's potty...

    Sorry David
    We seem to have lost the English plot as they say here, down south
