I'm building a plywood transport box for my dad's 228C lantern, a big hat so it is a pretty large box. I need to paint the outside and I'm wondering what color to paint it---Coleman Green? GI Olive Drab? Something else?
I'm open to suggestions.
To my eye, the Matching box with the lantern is a good look. You could even get a Colman logo sticker and dress it all the way. http://www.oldcolemanparts.com/home.php
Cool idea! I needed to order blue felt for the fuel filter funnel anyway. Thanks!
We of course will need to see pics of the project and completed box

I used the 200As again last Saturday. Had some folks over for burgers and dragged out the telescope for Jupiter viewing. Good times.

This made me wish I bought that red globe last year.

There's a Coleman meetup about an hour from my house this summer that I may attend.

So I'm thinking, why am I keeping two Coleman lanterns and three Coleman stoves?
I ought to just keep my dad's stove and lantern and pass on the rest.
I can't imagine finding uses for all this stuff (as delightful as it is!)

I just enjoy using them in rotation. Don't "Need" them, but last time I tried to give one to my son, he told me he didn't want anything that used anything besides propane to operate. :egor:

I hope that she works. I am going to try the denatured alcohol method for cleaning it. It is something like this:

It filled the tent with fumes from burning kerosene.
"If you want to kill yourself, you sure as hell ain't taking me with you" as I gathered up my sleeping bag and made a hasty exit.
The dude soon emerged coughing and agreed to turn off that infernal device or I would have had to go back and drag him out of that tent.

Not a fan of Coleman heaters, am I.

I still intend on a fancy woodworking project for a big hat lantern case one day, but I will tell you that you can wrap a towel around the middle of the lantern and store/transport in a five gallon bucket with a lid.

That is how mine have been stored for years; there is room for funnel, parts, mantles and such also.
