Just finished restoration work on a Coleman hood, stripped and re enamelled in green.
That looks really good, careful you might have to open a side business.
Wow, that looks perfect again. Do you know what caused the original damage? It's a strange wear pattern that doesn't seem to make sense.
You do nice work!
@John , He already has.
No idea what caused wear pattern, I see all sorts of things I have to restore, rusted out one's are the worst as they become too thin.
Looks very nice...but..enamel?.. do you mean porcelain fired in a kiln?
Vitreous enamel, yes fired in a kiln
Vitreous enamel = porcelain enamel:

I must say, that’s nice work on that’s nice work on that Coleman hood (or vent, as they call it).
It looks fine.
Absolutely superb work.
Top job mate. Excellent
Like @BigStevie says, absolutely superb work!
How is it you are removing the old porcelain?
That was my first question as well!
Finished product looks awesome!
I think he uses Bar Keeper’s Friend?
Looks to be a sand or media blast removal ? Or perhaps a secret formula?
My question would be how do you manage to colour match to an old hood/ventilator ? Lots of test pieces?
There is more than a hint of alchemy about it all...hum
Looks fantastic, have you subjected it to a lit lantern yet?
Those hoods certainly look like new. Great job. Where did you get the frits from? Or did you make them as well?
