    Thanks for the tips Troy. The good take away I get from this, is that if I don't like how it turns out, I can strip it down and do it again! A can of spray paint will go a long way if all I'm painting is the tag. Probably wouldn't have thought of the picks either. If I can keep the momentum going it will still probably take the better part of a year to finish this project. Things like this give me time to think about some of the other tasks. I need to see if I can gently twist these rivets out without damaging the tag. That'll help me finish the frame and the tag properly. If I get results I'm happy with, I'll be sure to post a picture. Thanks again.

    Hi. I've got a question about a post of your's from a couple of years back. You posted a couple of pictures where you had restored a serial number plate, which looks amazing. This is a bit off-topic because what I'm working on is my grandfather's 1942 BR. I've been looking into as many forums as I can for information, and yours was the best restoration example I've seen. Did you strip this completely to the bare metal, and then restore the black, or was your restoration the careful removal of the green? If it was a complete restoration from the metal up, I'd be curious to know the paint used, how it was masked, etc, if you're willing to share. If it only involved paint removal, time has already taken care of that for me I'm assuming the format should be similar to how yours appeared. I blurred the serial number in my pic ... it is quite legible. Thanks for any help.
