Being Canadian a lot of these are newer learning curves for me. I’m not biased where they’re from, I just like odd

Back to your original question. I would recommend using Evapo-Rust. It will completely remove all the rust effortlessly. Buff with a cloth.

Trevor,

That's an awesome can! I'd never seen one of those until today. What are the dimensions? Is it the same size as a typical US quart can? One of the photos makes it look taller and smaller diameter.

Thanks,
Tony

It’s the same size as any regular US qt. Sorry terrible picture but only one with compassion with me until I get home in a couple weeks

Thanks! That photo shows the size perfectly. It's interesting that the stripes are similar to the Phillips 66 can and (to my colorblind eyes) the orange is close...or the same. Considering that Union Oil is now a Phillips brand. If that's your photo and it's your Phillips can, is it also a Spanish can...or domestic?

Regards,
Tony
