Roger Byrne Posted November 23, 2021 Share Posted November 23, 2021 Gary why don't you just drive your TT truck over to Racine (or trailer it) next spring and I'll give it the same linseed oil & turpentine treatment that I use for the Autowagon and the box on the Acme. Your TT may not look like a new truck, but it will have a nice satin-black finish that would look a lot nicer but still have an original finish. There are times when a piece of mechanical history (car-truck-tractor) wheres its history well, that it's better to just preserve it the way it is. If someone in the future wants to paint it up, there is nothing lost and they can go to it. It's just that I have seen so many 20-30 year old restorations that look worse than they did before they had been repainted. As a side note, many not-so-perfect but original units, bring more money than restored examples. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
