I finally got this done. It has been on my work bench apart for over a year. It is not the greatest restoration out there but I am happy with it

Great job turning that rough jewel into a diamond..You may have see my post of 5 june "Silver Swan...".  Where did you get the Decal?...Was That Rustoleum Dark Walnut Rattle can?  Did you use the handy Spring depresser home-made tool? Once again that is a great job from some-one who knows.

I just used Rust-Oleum glossy black spray can. I also used that home made thing to compress the plate in the silver swan.

I got the decal from Kim Frank at fanimation but you can get them online. Right now the person that sells them is out of decals.
