    i agree with dtvpking ,what a pity it was coated in the first place ,probably to seal the bare metal shell ,looks like there might be remnants here and there of original paint ,the question then is what to do with the bare exposed shell ,would you have to seal it again in some way from superficial corrosion ,i quess it depends on your storage methods ,thanks james
