Final piece, ARISTOCRAT badge.

Handle is a little hard to get in with the new plating.

Re: Aristocrat Clubman & Clubmaster

Wasn't happy with my sanding and paint on the two larger panels. The two pics show my first attempt. Have now been stripped, sanded and primed. Pics to follow.

Re: Aristocrat Clubman & Clubmaster

Thanks Special!
Colour is meant to be brass but does have more of a gold look.

If you've read some earlier posts in this thread, I'm trying to work out the handle return. It seems mine is a different setup to most. Would it be possible to see some pics of yours?

Re: Aristocrat Clubman & Clubmaster

Correct, Starlite is finished but I might start a new thread on it, with some before and after shots for reference. The Clubmaster is stripped and painting commenced, chrome pieces are with the electroplater. CB9a.jpg The payout tray polished up pretty good with Autosol. CM24a.jpg cm25a.jpg

Re: Aristocrat Clubman & Clubmaster

Would anyone be interested in pics of this restore and if there is any interest, do I post them here or start another thread?
