    I found this Tilley hiding in country Victoria about a year ago, I have decided that I wont re-spray this beauty and leave her alone.
    I believe she is in excellent condition for the age of this lamp, if anything i might spray the reflector or not.

    I hope you like the money shot, I didn't even have to change any seals, I just put oil on the pump leather and away she went.

    Nice original working example, I would leave it exactly as it is, just my opinion.

    Nice unit and yes I think it is great to leave some as is. My eyes are getting older, is that a tear drop older style globe, ie the ones you do not want to break?
