Hey Skids, that looks great. What's your lid source?

Ah.

The lid is the cup from a Coleman aluminum mess kit. Fairly expensive but a perfect fit.

What is sitting on top of your pot in the first photo? I thought that was a lid.

Looks too shiny and new to get it dirty so soon. :)

Have you found a liquid product yet that will remove the ink from the pot ?

What color are you going to paint this one?

That's the new rim I made for it when I 'chopped' it

Nope. But I have found an easier method. ;)

Horrors! No paint for this one. :o

Might I say that rim looks professionally rolled. Very Very nice work! :mrgreen:

Sure. :D

Go to the auto parts store and get a Mother's Powerball. It's a foam ball with a bit attachment for a drill, lathe, etc. Smear it with rubbing compound and go to work. Takes about 10 minutes to finish the job. I did mine after I put the rim on but the next one I'll do it with the can full and unopened so I can use more pressure.

Here's the temporary rig I set up:

I've got a few ideas I want to try to make it even easier.
