Awesome! Any pics to share?

Interesting..."Year of Manufacture From 1981 To 1984"

Now it's even more confusing. Are the pre 1981 Gold Crowns that have Brustone fitted with a replacement paying surface? How can they have Brustone if it didn't come out until 1981?

B'stone was around way before the 80's.

If you believe that bs, that's during the GC3 production years, almost up to the GC4 production starting. So now what, the mid to end of the GC3 production cycle was Brunstone??....and 1 1/4" thick?....LMAO....yeah, ok!!

I hear you, Glen. You'd think the manufacturer would have a clue but unfortunately, they do not, I even emailed them requesting info on Brustone and when it was first manufactured and they directed me to the links already posted. Pretty sad, actually.

Progress!!! - 08-16-2019, 04:56 PM

A week in Little Rock, AR for work threw a wrench in my pace but I've made some real progress over the last few days. After some trial and error with my Finish Super Max HVLP Sprayer, I am happy to report all white pieces are complete except for the skirts. Some fine sanding marks are showing through so I plan to give them one more coat tomorrow morning. Overall, I am very happy with how everything turned out. They are not 100% perfect but I am probably the only one who will know of the flaws. Here are some pics:

Foot End Pedestal:





Head End Pedestal:




Pedestal Runner:




Ball Box:
The back of the ball box was busted out when I bought the table. I cut a new piece from 1/2" poplar to match and painted it apart. I will install the back once the paint cures.





Skirts:

I also made some progress on the metal work. I originally thought the feet were aluminum but they are a nickel plated die cast steel alloy of some sort. The pocket castings are also die cast (anodized) and the rail trim is extruded aluminum, also anodized. The rail trim is being re-anodized and should look like new once finished at a cost of $170 for the set. The feet and pocket castings would be very expensive to bring back to original and there is no guarantee they would look as new. I made a visit to a local powder coating shop and discovered a near dead match powder color I will be using on the pocket castings and feet. The person who quotes was on a fishing trip and will not be back until next week so I will not have a price until then. There is another shop I've used in the past so I may see if they can get the same color.

Thanks for updating this thread.

Paint job looks very nicely done. Interesting that your casting seems to have a Coating on them, that I don't believe (now seeing yours) mine has/had. I'd be very interested to see your tables feet.

Keep up the great work!

Gold Crown 1 & 2's had anodized castings so the metal wouldn't oxidize.
