My idea was to create some cool looking automotive man cave item that people might want. I clean them up with soap and water inside and out. then I take my wire grinder and strip all the old paint off. Paint comes off pretty easy so I can clean one up in about 20/30 minutes. Once all cleaned then I shoot them with a coat of apple red paint.
Not sure if apple red is the correct color, but I like it. I found some stickers of oil and gas companies. I put them on the cans after I get them painted. The stickers really make them pop.
No idea on what I am going to do with them. They look good in my garage, but I have about eight more cans to do and will need to unload them. Why do I have eight, just about every garage sale has one. I can get them for about five dollars. So if I see one I grab it.
