Hey, man, that ain't "rust"-------it's PATINA and it's all the rage these days.
Just remember, as "they"say, it's only original once. Wink

I agree with you. I'll buy that toy from you for your asking price, but if you paint it I'll only pay you half. Wink

Hi Guys,

Yep, the PATINA craze is definitely becoming popular Exclamation

I can see the PATINA look on the blue body of the Oval VW but the metal trim looks totally rusted Exclamation

Where do you draw the line between PATINA and totally rusted Popcorn

Well, if it were mine and I had time Iíd either find a product to knock the crusty rust off and put it back together or refinish the trim and leave the body alone. Everyoneís different and in the end itís your car, so do what you want. If this was the only one you had, (I doubt that though lol) Iíd wouldnít restore it. If you have 12 of them then have at er, paint it pink. Haha

Thatís awesome Bob, but Iím not the guy to change your plans with it. I think itíll look great and more people will appreciate that look these days. The bodyís not ratty and full of holes. If someone found a 50ís bug or bus it that condition and they were in the know, theyíd polish and clean it up also because itís still so decent.

Let me know when youíre done and you want to double your money!! 😁

I am happy to see that you have Flitz in your arsenal of refurbishing products (I have used it for years), but perhaps it will meet its match with those hubcaps and bumpers. Sad

As far as the tires go, could you soak them in Zymol Seal conditioner or somesuch?

Super nice BoB!

I amazed at the transformation of the trim pieces just by using the Flintz polish. Will need to add that to my shopping list!

Flitz is made in Germany, so you know it has to be good.

In what department did you find it? I'll have to get me some.

Nice sympathetic restoration, Hacksaw BoB. Now if I could get you to start experimenting with Johnson & Johnson Future for a clearcoat.

It's in the floorcare aisle!
