The radiator itself got a good cleaning down, before applying a couple of coats of primer.
I did some flattening of the primer between coats.

Over here we are having a nice summer. Today is pretty warm for here, around 28 degrees Centigrade or 82.5 degrees F.
That is hot for here, and it looks set to continue for the next week.

Anyway, it is great weather for painting.

Looking at your work makes me realize how bad my painting skills are. Looking forward to seeing the machine reborn!

I don't have much in the way of painting skills. I do have lots of patience though. By totally dismantling stuff and taking your time
with preparation, reasonable results can be achieved.
