It's been a while since I shared my can rolling post with the members here on oldgas, so I think it is time to share some before and after pics of a can I just finished repairing. I bought this off of ebay just to see if it could be fixed. These two pics show the front and back of the can. It is a soldered seam can that was split and apparently nailed to a wall or roof...probably as some sort of a patch. It also appears that when it was nailed down and then later removed it was not done carefully or with any intent of it ever being saved in the future as it was quite bent up.

Here is the repaired can. Turned out much better than I had expected and displays pretty good.

You did an absolutely marvelous job. I had no idea a can that bad off could be salvaged. Really amazing. How could I send you a can to get fixed??? I have a couple of still in tact cans that are nowhere near the horrible condition of the can in your pics, so I figure you make my cans look like new old stock!!!
