So this isn’t woodworking, but I know that there are plenty of people on here with some great metal refinishing skills that would probably be able to lend some advise.
My mother in law gave my wife and I a New Orleans water meter cover for our anniversary. Most people know the Fleur de Lis as the symbol of New Orleans, but the water meter cover is a very popular as well. For a quick history lesson check out this link.
Not sure what were going to do with it, but its kinda rusty and a bit hard to read so we’d like to rehab it. Anyone have any tips? I don’t think its going to look exactly like the one in the link I shared, but I’d love it to be as close as possible.
Here is a photo of what I’m starting with:
