I would think just a coat after the decal is on the screwdriver would be fine. I don't see any advantage to applying a coat first and again after decal application. That's my $.02.

Thought you guys would like to see this. Armrer replicated a couple BDS screwdrivers from my original. It's like jewelry!

Hey all,
I wanted to post this just because I thought it was interesting. A couple original owners asked to have their GB-2800 grease guns restored and Armrer was right on it! What I thought was neat was the differences in all three. (mine is in the middle) All three are GB-2800's but you can see slight differences in the tooling used to make the crimp.
Are we obsessive or what?!!

Terry Clips. I don't think we photographed any but they are available on eBay and Cobra parts vendors.

This is the original hardware for a Cobra or 427 Cobra for fixing the jack against a boot compartment wall.

Clip: When AC Cars shut down the first time a large number of clips were obtained from their stock room by some Cobra rebuilders in the UK. The last time I bought some (about ten years ago) from one of these fellows stock was almost gone but there should be some around in the UK. Commercial reproductions are available.

Chrome Plated Brass Raised Contersink Screws with BA threads. : 4BA X 43/64 inch threaded length under head. (Note: The same screw but with a different nut was used for glove box door hinges.) I never found any new old stock or new made ones in more than eight years of hunting. For my use repairing a friends Cobra I had a few made in the UK by a manufacturer of brass screws. Easy to find longer length stainless steel screws of modern manufacture can be cut to required length.

Standard 4BA Hex Nuts: I found a few here and there in the UK, model rail road enthusiasts still use some BA threaded parts. Sometimes some of the suppliers of British specification hardware for the restoration trade carry them. They are bare steel (self colored in British terminology) pieces machined from imperial hex rod stock; one side in flat faced and one side is chamfered.

Spiral Lock Washers: (the tiny washers not visible in the angle of this picture) Easy to find.

Distance Pieces: An AC Cars fabricated part, machined from round aluminum rod. To get new ones you make them or buy them from somebody that has already made them.

As used with grease guns there were no distance pieces and the fasteners were different.

It looks like a Stanley. Check out legenmetals photo above. Handle looks similar and his looks great!
It has a little different shape than the BDS but with their rarity, finding one is beyond difficult. I searched for years before one turned up and the seller didn't know it was anything special.
You can buy a replication as well. Nick has them on his site.

I am about to refurb my 2800 geese gun and was wondering What the colour used on Tecalemit Geese gun and was the Brass ring painted or left natural Brass finish? I've seen a few different shades of blue some with a green tinge to them...

Thanks
