    That Heer decal is strange! The black ink has survived perfectly but all of the metallic pulver is gone. It's like a stencil now, pretty cool.
    I noticed that as well Andy. Very cool.

    Nicely cleaned up too. Got rid of those rust boils without fading the paint. As asked above, was the treatment an Oxalic acid bath?

    As for cleaning you'll have to ask the Gurov as that is his field !!

    I have a SS lid with similar faded decal. Very little of surface decal left. The heavy cleaning and acid does this. At least these guys know how to clean away the rust and not the whole decal with it.

    The trick is not to touch the decal while its wet. The acid may soften the decal so until everything is dried nice and hard again, it's a case of 'hands off' as far as the decal is concerned.
