So I've been rebuilding my fonts lately to go on the new shiny kegerator. My font collection has been stashed in boxes under the house for a while and have go a bit of grime and surface tarnishing on them.
The taipan/cobras were worn through to the brass in some spots so I hit them with a flap disk on the grinder and gave em a light hand sand, will sandblast them for a matte finish before clear coating but that's another story...
My "Andale" fonts were in better condition but still a bit lacklustre against brand new stainless steel so I did some digging into chrome restoration and came across a product called 'Metal Shine' by Autosol (you can get it at the big green shed) and thought I'd try it before getting into more serious options. The result is fucking schmick! Wipe on, buff off. See pics below after 1 coat, they looked even better after 2.
So if your chrome is looking tired it may be worth a go.
Yep been using Autosol products since my first motor bike. Haven't tried the "metal shine" but I have an old brass and porcelain font I'm about to mount to an Xseries kegerator when it arrives (was supposed to be here yesterday but kegland have been selling what they have yet to unload from the container). So when I tare down the font from it's current installation I'll be doing a good clean down and line replacement so might give this new stuff a go.
happy: I was given a co2 and nitrogen mix bottle and I'm trying to find any info on psi and time to properly carbonate with this mix. Any clues please? Thanks Happy
