    Here is the 2nd example that I have which I had a go at removing the yellow paint on the top cover but partially removed some of the markings. This one only got the outer faces of the 2 outside ammo cans sprayed over.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    That's the bulk packaging for belts for the GPMG, ours are wood crates, or they used to be anyway. Four belts is normal.

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Acetone is what I used on a Germanicon helmet that was covered in silver paint. Worked well and didn't remove any underlying paint or the decal which I was scrubbing away at for five minutes before I realized what it was.

    A little late to the party but,
    Nice can OP. I'm not a paint specialist but have had a couple finds
    Covered in paint and had good luck with gasoline removing the paint you want to remove
    And not the OD green and/or yellow stamped letters. Just don't hover over the letters for any length of time.
    Flipside of that coin is had some that gasoline won't touch.
    In any case job well done and nice can recovered.

    Edit : Nice find on the 30 Cal can never seen that mechanism before.
