If possible for you, could you send some photos from these newspaper ad showing the painted Glen. Thanks.


Pierre,
Well first I threw back 8 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon to stop my hands from shaking (just kidding), then I used a very thin artists brush and took my time and it came out really good with just one coat. It reminded me of painting models when I was a kid. I like how the letters stand out and think it looks classy. Thank you for the comments.

Chad

P.S. it was really only 7 can of Pabst :P

Not a Glenwood but another Boston stove company from 1908. Great reading about these stoves. Enjoy. Chad

Time waits for no one. I did 21 years active duty and the tolls of war wore heavily on me.
