how restore the drip tray on machines anni '60
The machines produced during the years 1964-1973 were provided with drip tray inside the base of aluminum and protected by a grid with square holes.
With the usage is inevitable the deterioration of paint how shown in the photos.
Is can restore the paint pretty in way simple and quick as you can see from the photos, in the first drip tray the paint is missing on the edge and on the bottom, in the second drip tray the paint is missing only on the bottom
In the bottom of the drip tray usually there is the total
absence of paint while on the walls there are residue irregular that
should be removed with sandpaper before painting. Initially paint
the drip tray with anti-rust, then use paint hammered and a transparent
varnish for added protection.

protect the edge of the tray with adhesive tape
protect the other parts with newspaper sheets
spray the anti-rust in a different angles
after few minutes, spray paint hammered in a similar manner to the previous
Allow to dry a few minutes and spray the varnish transparent
let dry a few minutes before removing the masking tape
