When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

I did a 60/40 Diesel /ATF on my 71 and it shined up real nice, I've read it also slows rust.

I used linseed oil on mine. It looked good but dust really stuck to it. Kind of ruined the effect. I haven’t washed it to see if it would retain the oiled look.

I am going to clean up my rust and what's left of my paint and do it. I have a lot of dirt I am going to try to get off before the oil.

Keep in mind any oil, diesel, linseed, atf, whatever will attract dust. The oil will last through a washing to some degree.

As the youtube mentioned, you need to use boiled linseed oil or it will be sticky.
