Amphi going into restoration



I had the opportunity to do some work on an old unrestored
Amphi and was suprised at how well the original metal was down in the
lower rear quarters. It looked brand new and the reason for it was the
original owner put high temperature grease down there about 1/4" thick
and it stayed. I don't know if the owner ever touched it up or not but
he did the bilge the same way and it was great underneath. he didn't
use a nasty black grease but one that could be seen through. There
might be some club members that might think of some good reasons this
isn't a good idea and they would probably know more but from what I've
seen, it works and I've replaced metal where it wasnt protected.
