So--- I Bought this old Oil drum at a garage sale this summer for 5 bucks because i assumed the label had just faded away. you could barely read it at all like the paint was just barely there... well today my buddy was over and was like "hey, whats that oil can say??" i was like, not sure i think its pretty faded. so he pulled it down and we looked really closely and realized it was covered in some kind of greasy paint or thin tar that was dried and looked like faded paint.
Took it in the garage and put some soap on it. nothing. then tried some windex.. nothing.... then a little watered down degreaser....a little came off and a bright red and white letter appeared !! so after about 45 minutes of windex, degreaser, and some delicate elbow grease, it mostly came off !! i was so pumped !!!
Heres a few pictures!
btw, anyone know what the value of this can would be?
