Antique Wrought Iron Restoration at Pensacola Lighthouse Museum

Recently we were contacted by Matt Kuehne of the Pensacola Lighthouse Museum and asked to do some restoration of the antique metalwork on the lighthouse.

The project included a full scraping and removal of loose rust flakes and chunks, and a rust treatment with a tannic acid-based rust neutralizer, followed by weld repairs and replacement of any metalwork that was beyond repair. Finally we treated every inch of the metalwork with a coat of red rust preventative oil-based primer and a topcoat of an oil-based black enamel.
