So this stuff allows you to keep the patina of age and use but prevents further deterioration? I guess time will tell how well it works.

It has the look of linseed oil on metal. I like it a lot.
Are there limitations on the over coat paint? Does it have to be oil base or can it be anything.

Thanks form taking the time to review.

To prevent rust and corrosion and not hurt the paint or electrical system I have been using Krown T40 about 10 dollars a spray can,it is clear. Cheers Mike

Hi

I spoke to the supplier and he said that you can over paint with any paint

He suggests that I try a product called CIP the has the same oil plus undercoat

That's what i coat all my stuff with, works great, re-apply every few years but use thin layers as thick ones take weeks to dry.

   OOOOOHHHHHH  I am going to have to keep an eye on this, I want to preserve my wheel horse and have not been sure of what to use on it.  How much of it did you use to cover the walk behind?  I have the wheel horse rj and will need enough to cover it.

PS-  Thanks jesse for trying this and letting us know how it works
