    My next project -- this one is gonna hurt... all that paint on the slats... over four different colours... still rare to find a dome top zinc trunk so hopefully it will be worth the effort... my fingers are numb just thinking of the scraping...
    This is the final product -- came out pretty well -- thanks everyone for comments and loves...

      Oh, this is gonna be a real BEAUTY!!!! Love that double lock. Winter's on it's way, so what a great winter project this one will be.

      T-man you will have it done in a week if I know you. Scott is so right, nice lock!
      You are right too, hard to find zinc dome.

      If you have the ability and tools and space to do it you are even more blessed. :)

      Drill -- too funny, you do know me, can't leave these projects unattended... also I do not have a heated space to work in for winter so gotta wrap this up soon... OneGoodFind... "Godliness with contentment is great gain"... thanks for the reminder....

      Love the double lock, too. I'm sure you'll probably have it done in the next couple of days and it will look great!!

      Thanks Rick55 -- will post soon, i think... stalled out a bit there..

      No pressure pal,
      Time is what is required to do things right, and to pay respect to the makers of the past.I always love a good baggage picture,so I'll share what i find. Imagine carting all of these around?

      Thanks Drill -- the look on the porter's face about matches mine looking at this "project" sitting in my garage -- great poster. Thanks for the encouragement -- literally have to chip away at this one... four coats of lead paint on the slats is a real "kicker".
