NMPaul Besides some touch up paint, pretty much done. Kinda realized when I was done it kinda looks like a John Deere cannon, or a VW hippie van. Anyhow, it was a lot of fun going through it. Maybe I will get another cannon down the road I would feel comfortable shooting.
Any ideas for protecting the vent hole and barrel opening in the elements?? I plan on displaying cannon outside. Thanks

Oil base primer for all wood and metal after I grind all rust off and repair. Oil base black for all metal parts. Top quality latex for wood that is premiered already

There is also a yellow oil base used for some bling type parts.

double d The Lapan cannon barrel is a copy of a British barrel made during the Revolutionary War and recovered from Lake George. The Carriage is similar to the style of that period.

The gun was cast and sold by Lapan Founry in New York during the 1976 Bicentennial.
