Ransomes with patina

The Ajax rat rod mower im cleaning up for every day use to save my 'proper' ajax is nearly ready. I know it will probably be a marmite finish but i really like it.

I wet sanded all the paintwork so its silky smooth and protected with boiled linseed oil. Its all ready to re assemble and use once i have the money to have the cylinder sharpened.

I only took one before photo, but you all know what a rusty mower looks like.
