Just a quick update. Sadly I`ve no detailed photos of the saddle before I stripped it down but hopefully you can appreciate how dirty it was with 50 years and no clean I expect!

Parts in a bucket after just being cleaned in paraffin.

Rebuilt – just to check I could remember!!

And stripped again for sanding

Then repainted light grey – does it look too like undercoat ? Sorry, the pic isn`t too detailed with a little bit too much in the background but they were still wet to move and it was the only place dust free!
