The restoration was actually pretty easy given that the cast iron had no rust on it at all. It took me three cans of spray paint. bottle of acetone and a wire wheel for my drill but the total cost has come to $32 so far!

The nuts and bolts where tricky to clean up. I put them in a container of white vinegar for 12hrs and had to do that three times before all the rust was cleaned off. I did not want to spend $20 on just hardware to replace it all.

The paint I used was this tremclad professional high performance rust enamel, dark machine grey.
