I know of several people who would love to own them tins and more so if not opened, they are man cave decorations and very sought after these days, they have a far greater value now than when you purchased them, i had a 1 gallon agri Castrol oil can that i had Creosote in and i chucked it due to corrosion on the bottom as it leaked slightly, later so one for sale at a Auto jumble for £30,, used to use Castrol R40 or Cazzy R as it was better know as in my Fizzy loved the smell of it and still do,  

I wouldn,t part with em i quite like the look of em on the shelf in the workshop

NO just WD40 and it and wipe with a old rag and thats it, to T Cut it is taking the value and age away from it, A customer has just sprayed a ford 7840 to tidy it up for sale and was not very impressed when i said, you have spent a wk on it and £60 on paint just to devalue it by about 2k, not a happy bunny as when he asked some one else they said if should of been left alone as it was tidy enough and it would of been worth 2-3k more,

Always make more money in original condition

I was in a mans garage a few years ago and after many years of trying he'd eventually managed to buy a particular Manx Norton in "as last raced" condition, 1962 I think he said it had been, even still had the bugs splatted on the flyscreen.

 

I asked him what way he was going to clean it up and he said he wasn't, it was staying exactly as he bought it.
