I was lucky enough to be given a small cast iron pot belly stove
Now to restore it back to its former glory I'm missing a lot of parts it was made in New Zealand by Masport and is the Orogen range which was made in 2000 my question is do I molasses bath it or do I just rub it back and hit it with a hi temp paint the hot plate on the right is a test run of the hi temp paint in the pics I have never ever done this type of thing before so input would be greatly appreciated

Electrolisis would work good and that would get to all the hard to reach places as well

I have one of these in my kitchen and it works great have not thought of doing restoration have just painted it once with black pot belly paint.

I have had mine for 15yrs and it came with the house, put it on at 6am and let it burn out and it still keeps warm for about 3 hrs. Richmond NSW can get down to -1 in winter.
I also have a large fireplace in the lounge room.
