Restored Optimus 8R



In my last post I talked about the trad camping cooker I was given and today I put it back together after stripping & re painting it etc. I decided in the end not to add a clip on the lid for the spanner but I have added some tin foil to the base to protect the new paint once it's fired up as I read on another blog that it was a good idea to protect the new paint from getting damaged. I think the royal blue and polished brass looks quite nice together and as soon as I get the chance I hope to use it while out cycling for a brew up etc. 

Pictured above are two photos of the restored cooker
