What great info. the marbles is nothing more than brilliant. Can't wait to try out mix on a old 51 GMC coming in from Colorado. I have always used BLO on old tools and ax, hammers etc.,etc. Dries hard. Doc.

Follow up. We all get a bit excited over nothing sometimes. So I’m a little excited. Well, I have good news!
The boiled linseed oil I applied 2 weeks ago seems to keep that satin sheen . . . . . and
it seems to be very water repellent too. After all, oil and water don’t mix very well, do they?
I had my truck out in the rain tonight. Didn’t intend to let it get wet, but it was a gulley washer downpour.
See pics. The water beads up just like a brand new wax job.

I'd like to the BLO on my old 51 and keep as much of the original paint/patina as I can. The hood/roof is near bare metal so it would be nice to blend in hear and there, but I probably won't spend the $$.

Anyway, what was your sanding grit/prep technique? Mine has a pretty course scale on it due to sitting for 30-40 years outside.

thanks

Please, if you must coat your oxidized paint and rust, use a flat clear coat. Anything else doesn’t look right. People ask me all the time what I do to protect my “patina”. I tell them that I just throw a car cover over it and drive it. I know this is a little off topic, but here it is.

I invest my money in precious metals, mostly rust!

Chrispy, for my 52 that sat out for years I used a lot of time and elbow grease with rubbing compound to "sand" it. Even took the rusty hood to a beautiful patina finish instead. Why not just use Auto wax? That's what I'm doing, why use BLO instead?
