Quick lite 427 with original mica chimney

#1

Post by paulbarrette »

I didn't need another 427 but I was looking for an interesting project, and this one looks completely original, except for the gen.

This 4/27 from Toronto has an original Coleman mica chimney which I though was restorable. It also has a preheat cup. Nickel looks ok, it should clean up nicely.

I plan on using evaporust for the chimney. I am hoping it will clean up the mica.

Thoughts?

Killer! Nice score. What's the story? Yard sale? Estate sale? Craigslist? Antique mall? None of the above?

I've used Evaporust on a couple chimneys, good results. Will it affect the wording?

Hi Duane,
Ya that is my worry. I will speak the upper 5/8ths in evaporust rust before I clean the bottom.

Yep, lots of Coleman stuff on the prairies to be found, seems like tons of stuff comes out of Saskatchewan. I'm in Alberta.

Nice find! Chimney derusting should go well. Be extra careful in dealing with that original mica frame!

It looks solid, complete, and comes with a sweet Coleman mice chimney...whatโ€™s not to like!
Congrats, Paul, canโ€™t wait to see it breathing once more.

Thanks bill. Evaporust did an awesome job on the chimney. I didn't think it would work that well.
