I am restoring my "new" 1965
Safari and fortunately I am able to do a lot with just elbow grease and couple of cans of penetrants and lubricants.
Plastic vent covers and new wheels were obvious, but what really hit me is, that the toilet, that is build into rear bench is having metal sleeve below porcelain bowl, that turned into dust. Really!
I know in that era some aluminum casts was formulated as "shaisemetal" and have seen smaller plumbing parts doing that, but this is major setback to me.
Replacing the toilet with new available on the market is not an option without remodeling whole bathroom, changing floor plan and so on.
I search the forum and didn't find any topic about the issue, but have seen several pictures with AS bathrooms identical to mine.
Can't believe I am the only one with the problem and hope somebody has an easier solution?
Thanks for any suggestions.
