Thx Don, not even near of what I was planning to do, but as long as I do at least a thing per weekend, the project goes on!
These things take awful lot of time for sure. When i've picked this new year eve resolution. (always try something new)
Never thought I would like it as I do now. Despite the very limited space that I have, I know I'm gonna have now a permanent "plating" corner.

I did almost nothing! Just looked at bubbles, mother nature did the rest! Smile
Its magic, really love it!

Fabrice the only advice for seperating the pipes would be grind the visible weld off at the joint and then heat the pipe that attaches to the header. That should expand the metal and allow it to loosen enough to remove.

There is no weld, it's a very tight tube in a tube connection with a 30 years film of corrosion in between. On a workbench a bit heat, small beatings and a little force would get them loose for sure, but as they are now, with the lack of practical space to get to them/work around the connection is another story.
Oh well, I'll try the torch/heat massage first and move to plan B if that would fail...
