CRUSTY AND ROTTEN ANYONE?????

CRUSTY AND ROTTEN ANYONE?????

Click to view full size image

The inside of my Unistyle 250 . This looks like it has been sitting in the ocean for a while ! This is how it looked when I got it 35 years ago. My guess is since it came from Connecticut it probably lived most of it's life either on a pier or bridge/roadway by the sea . Despite the corrosion it still works perfectly !!

This is pretty typical of really old lights here. The salty air just wreaks havoc on the castings. This is a little more extreme then I usually see though.

I think this was laying on it's back for a long while as there is a water line on the reflector !

I think you're right, there wouldn't be rust stains on the top housing otherwise. I wonder how long it was out of service before you got it?
