i love the patina once its been restored all that is lost forever, if it were mine i would do engine gearbox brakes etc and then run it then if you cannot live with it you can then restore it but once restored you cannot go back. i left mine oily rag and love the look. i am also based in norfolk kings lynn so not to far away from you. kevin bowman.
