That how my wifes tractor looked after she spent hours scubbing off the decades of oil & grease. The only good part of it was it kept the paint in fine shape. We got lucky and the tires either were never loaded or someone unloaded them. It is very common to find a bolen walker with fluid in the tires, more than any other tractor. It also the first tractor that needs a set of new rims. I have found that after sand blasting them, you can spray them down with some muratic acid and that will stop the chemicals in the fluid. If you dont stop it it will just come back and bubble up under the new paint. I been going to try some of the acid ecthing primer to see if it would work.
