Hello Bruce, I enjoyed this thread a bunch. I myself would have a hard time covering that attractive self made Meths burner with paint, but I also understand the desire to make like original.

In the video you spoke of lining the firehouse with a heat resistant material to help save the paint, I was wondering if you could elaborate on that a little? Things like how you secure in place or what the material is or possibly a link to purchase?
Thanks for making such high quality posts!
the flame resistant material is 1/8" flame resistant sheet that can be bought nearly anywhere , the stuff I used probably came from China as I bought it years ago, I cut the 2 vent holes on either side a little large as to not be seen & with the 1/2' band that holds the boiler secure on this particular model I simply tucked the heat shied between the band & firebox which worked nicely....that was it.
