I coat everything with lanolin. It flash rusts otherwise on humid days.Looking really awesome, love reading and seeing your updates. Question, dont remember if you covered it. But how do you keep all that bare metal looking fresh? Do you keep a layer of light oil on it?
I'm in Michigan (USA) and bare metal tends to start getting rust on it quickly.
Thanks mate.looks great Marcus
Many thanks mate. Been helpful for me to to document as I learn and do this so I can always go back and re-read anything I may have forgotten.I'm a total newbie here, but I just spent the last two hours tacking your progress from March of 2011. UNBELIEVABLE! You are making this creation your life's work. What a marvelous rig you are building, and what a wonder is your account of it, step by step. Do keep the updates coming!
