A real deep AGA range cooker clean (plus lots of new bits!)

This job was a challenge, quick a big one! This Aga range cooker had been off for months and had been given virtually no attention or love, despite a hard working life, since the 1960's (possibly 50's!). The owners had decided against re-enamelling as the hob, despite a lot of wear, was still serviceable. To make life doubly hard the Aga range cooker was in the middle of a building site. A full days work later and the cooker did not look brand new but I think the pictures speak for themselves and show just what is possible!
