Had this idea in my mind so I had an hour or so to kill and tried to do a rustic restoration, just an experiment. I new if I didnt like this I would be glass beading the whole thing anyways and painting it as I had decided not to leave it as is, it has green paint on it that Sunoco never used. Comments welcome.... I think. lol

    I'll agree with offcialfuel, but will be awaiting to see how the experiment turns out, good luck and nice can.

    Thanks official,chevy,kerry and stonesfan for checking this out, I didnt want to paint the whole can yellow w/ blue letters and going with blue can and yellow letters is backwards for time period, so I painted the yellow diamond and then tried to make it look old. it sure makes sunoco stand out more, I think Ill leave it like this for now, thanks all.

    Yes -- it looks great with the "freshen up" look. Nice touch to it.

    I agree with your rustic approach & it looks great this way. It certainly added show-ability and value.
