I do so regret having wrinkle painted these cases 40 years back. Just got it all stripped off and cleaned up.

A little more work and then some Glyptal on the innards.

I used Glyptal for years, Tim!

But I suggest a long bake around 200ºF before assembly.

Thanks Cotten, I did that in my electric smoker. Interesting how it darkened up during that.
