This customer purchased the item at our site.
The paint was (I feel) required to give the engine a well deserved `a bit of a lift` as for years `she` has remained, dirty, drab and neglected.
So, the only parts to be so treated are `her` cross-head castings, Eccentric straps and the cross cylinder oil reservoir set at the rear of this engine. The engine being a twin cylinder (dual) vertical steam engine of unknown lineage, however the vertical mainframe casting states this was a Ruston - Procter product, possibly of pre 1918 origin.

Advantages: I liked both applying the primer and top coat via brush, it applied easily and I always apply a thinned 60/40 primer first coat.
When applying the top coat one can (well I can) `feel` when one dragging the paint and not applying it.
Good paint and know doubt I will if requiring any further colours contact Paragon Enamel paint.

Disadvantages: The only disadvantage and I am yet to reach get there is when the tin is empty and all one requires are a couple more brushfuls !!!
