I can't find any information on this subject, so I thought I would post the question here. Is there any solution to the issue of vintage (full) metal oil cans collaping in on themselves? The cans I have are dented, but not due to handling or abuse. They have been in a box for 50+ years untouched. I think the issue is temp changes from hot to cold? Or the chemicals inside the can over time have began to break down and pull whatever air was in the can into itself causing itself to dent? Is the only solution draining? I was thinking that as soon as the seal broke, the dents would pop back out. I'll probably just leave them be, but thought I'd ask if anyone has experienced this. Thanks.
Pair of vintage auto gauges perfect for display or ratrod applications. Pair consists of a 1930-1931 Chevrolet gas gauge and an 8 day Keyless Wind up auto clock. Not sure how the clock works at all, but both pieces are very early automobilia. Price for the pair is $50 shipped. PayPal preferred.
