Afternoon all, This week I have acquired the following oil lamps: - 1x BR Pattern Tail Lamp (Empty Case) - 1x Early SR (LBSCR Pattern) Hand Lamp. Burner complete and usable but red filter shattered and soldering at base gone. - 1x LSWR Hand Lamp (Empty Case) - 1x BR(S) (SR Pattern) Four Aspect Hand Lamp. Burner probably unusable, all filters intact and structurally sound. Now, the first three of those I don't intend using currently though I will probably swap the burners of the BR(S) and LBSCR-Pattern ones to create one usable lamp. I have almost stripped the BR(S) one to bare metal ready for a repaint, and this is where I could use some advice. For the Tail Lamp I simply used some standard white paint, for the LBSCR-Pattern Hand Lamp (which I intended to use until I dropped the blasted thing on the footbridge at Alton) I painted on a layer of black hammerite followed by a layer of black gloss, but this doesn't seem to have worked terribly well. Is there anyone on here who might be able to offer some guidance as to how to best paint one of these lamps, and what paint is best to use? I can't imagine that any random type of paint can be used due to the heat involved when the lamp is lit. I'd like to get a decent finish on all of these, the LSWR one also preferably being able to have a burner put in it at some point.
