Thought I'd show my latest restoration here - a rather chunky 1990's era Brigham 536 quarter-bent Brandy. The shape is new to me, and will be added to my ongoing Brigham Shape Chart project at the next update.

Simple Man - are you viewing on mobile? The pics show when I view from my laptop, but oddly enough not on my phone. Will try to remedy....

Thanks for the heads up!

EDIT - I think we're live now Very Happy

Nice restoration. What did you use to get the pipe so shiny?

I polished with micromesh sanding pads (2500 - 12000 grits) then buffed with White Diamond compound & carnauba wax.
