Today at 12:49 AM Fry 87 Repro Bonnet and Powder-Coated Globe Holder by model72

I spent over 2 hours trying to make a repro bonnet fit and never came close. I first used a wire brush on 4" grinder to remove the rust, then used palm sander with 80 grit sandpaper to remove more rust and smooth down the pitted areas and then used stone attachment on dremel tool to remove more rust and smooth more, then used palm sander with 150 grit sanding disk and still the repro bonnet would not slip down over the top plate. I started on one side and tapped my way around it until it popped up and off on the opposing side. Tried placing a round board on top of the globe holder and tapping it down from the center, no luck. I think it was made too small. I suppose I could put a grinding disk on my 4" sander and grind the top plate down more, but not sure that is the answer. Suggestions to install it? I will discuss with vendor on Tuesday.

The second repro problem I ran into was installing globe lenses on a powder-coated globe holder. The snap ring will not properly seat in the groove because the powder coat appears to be too thick in the channel where the snap ring should seat. I touched the snap ring and it popped out. I did not have that problem with a repro globe holder that I purchased unprimed. I primed and painted with rattle can. Snap rings seated in the groove. Anyone had this problem with powder-coated repro globe holder?
