Just an update. The auto clean coat seems to have worked quite well. 6 months on and it's still looking good.

Update on the linseed oil, I'm now living right on the coast and the old listeroid is outside with a tarp over it when not running. All parts coated in boiled linseed are perfect. All bare metal not coated now have surface rust!

Hey Guys,

Anybody tried "Renaissance Wax" for metal/wood protection outdoors and indoors.... I have used it quite successfully, albeit not in an "open to the elements" environment on quite a few "single-cylinder-disposable-piston" type machines....
