This is a gas can I picked up this summer when I took my 9 year old for a fun day of picking at the Hillsville Va labor day sale. If you have never been to this it is worth your trip, thousands of vendors show up and what a blast it is. Jacob is in the picture to the far right. He helped me with the cleanup and prep of this.

    That is a fantastic gas can and you did a great job with the restoration. About what year is it? BTW, Jacob is adorable!

    Thanks lostinspace, I dont have much info on this can. I hate to say but I actually have put the can into service. I got an old used riding mower last spring and needed a larger can than I had, this sucker is heavy when full of gas though! ...I am really happy with how the restore turned out. It is a "safety" type can, you have to pull the trigger to get gas to flow, that way it wont spill if tipped over. The brass plate on it is underwriters lab
