Top bottom fed radiators

We have just finished restoring these old 4 column cast iron radiators.Originally they all had top and bottom feeds for the old fashioned heating system the customer had.As our customer is installing a new heating system she is taking the opportunity to change the pipes around so that they just connect neatly to the bottom of each radiator.

This we do by removing the old fitting/bush at the top,then we remove the blanking plug at the bottom,carefully clean all male and female threads, then we reseal the bush and the blanking plugs in their new position.

We then carried on with our radiator restoration process and primed and painted these using Farrow & Ball Old White.
