The little green truck in the picture looked like it was solid rust when I bought it in a flee market. I bought the new bumper for it at a toy show and the fellow I bought it from ask what I was going to do with it. I told him I was going to sand blast it and repaint. He said why not try washing it with dish soap water using steel wool lightly. Just enough to remove the rust. spray on a light coat of clear enamal in very small areas and buff it dry. Not to let it dry but beff it dry. This is how it turned out.

Just guessing. Turtle Wax "Color Back" is supposed to remove the dead dull film on neglected paint.

That sounds like the product that some dealers use to make used equipment look better. It looks like they just mask the glass and some of the rubber and shoot. It is probably clear lacquer. It appears to last according to how much prep was done.

I have a version of what you are talking about, I got it from A & I,called Dakota Shine, I just bought 1 aresol can, didnt get the prep, and tried it on the nose cone of a 730. It really made a difference,wonder what a little rubbing out or the prep would of done to help. It looks like a heavy duty clear coat. Its always inside so dont know about durability. Hope that helps.

I have some friends that use Dakota Shine on some newer IH tractors that they sell. The stuff works pretty well, buts its expensive. Runs over $100 a gallon I think. The stuff is supposedly soy based, but its got some pretty good fumes to it. It def helps the tractor look better, but if your sharp you can tell that something isnt right. Almost like its too shiney for paint with blemishes. I think someone skilled with a buffer could probably do almost as good of a job.
