    Hello all I am very happy as I have now been sent a X246 brown hood from my mate in the UK.
    This lamp will be left as is in original condition I did put in a polished burner head on for now, when I find one of the same condition it will be changed over.
    I have decided to name this lamp, normally my lamps are all females I dont know why but they are, so this one will be a he and his name will be Bigstevie hint hint.
    I'm very pleased to have such a beauty in my collection especially from an Australian point of view as our X246 are all spectrum plated.
    Enjoy fellow lampers.

    That one is in really good condition.
    A great lamp, I have just been using one to defrost the car.
