Cylinder black ?
« on: 05.10. 2010 16:48 »
What's the best coating to use for Cylinder barrels and Iron Head on the A7 ?
We used to use "cylinder black" brush on but I'm not sure it's still available. I used a spray last time but it's a matt finish and I'd prefer gloss.

Hi Pete,
I've just looked at the link suggested by Rich as mine could do with attention sometime... 

I have part of a tin of Granville Cylinder Black left which I put on my Velo.. It's just starting to flake now in places but to be fair that was over 15 years ago ..... *smile*
