I've been given several different old cardboard oil cans for a gas station storage shed I build in my backyard. I'd
plan on placing them in a window I placed to make the shed look like a gas station.
Does anybody know how I preserve the outside of the oil cans to stop the fading of the colors and printing on the cans?
Varnish, Clear coat ?
Thanks DZ

WELCOME TO OLDGAS
Do not place ANY CAN in DIRECT SUN, they will BLEACH OUT no matter what you seal them with.

Better make a few copies, it will fade & deteriorate also.

It will SLOW the process, but not stop it.
Keep an ample supply & change out as needed.
