    Canadian No36 M restoration

    This grenade was made by a rather difficult to find manufacturer so I felt it was worth the effort to restore it. It had been painted green at some point in its past which is completely incorrect and just wouldn't do so I stripped it back to bare metal and applied a couple of coats of amber shellac. This looked decent so I went ahead and added the red x's and green band then aged it all lightly. This was far easier than I anticipated and now it's much more presentable in my opinion.

    Each time I uploaded the new photo it appeared rotated. Any idea how to prevent that or edit it?

    Thanks guys. I wish it was displayed properly. It's always my preference to leave items with their original finish but sometimes someone else has already removed the original finish so I get to play. I really enjoy the process of restoring these items and if I had the opportunity to do it more often it would be fun to experiment with aging techniques.
