Received mine yesterday. The outsides are pretty rough, but the inside is like new. Doesn’t look like they’ve ever had a drop of anything in them. They also sent me and extra nozzle gratis. Impressively quick shipping as well. Going to clean and paint them, will post some before and after pics.
outside usually are skuffy, they never get stored inside by the military, wirebrush and a coat of paint, ive yet to get one surplus, that had a speck of a problem inside......

I got mine a couple of days ago, but haven't had time to post.

It looked pretty much like the pics on the website.
it might have looked beat up on the outside, but I swear it doesn't look like it has ever had a drop of fuel on the inside.

I took a minigrinder and wire wheel and cleaned it up a bit.
I had to use a small wire brush to get in the nooks and crannies around the spout and handles.

I painted it with some camo paint from Wally World.

Then set it the sun to dry.

After the paint dried, I taped it off around the bottom and sprayed the bottom with spray on bed liner.

This will help to protect the bottom of the can from getting the paint scratched up and giving a foot hold to rust. IMG_20210522_184132.jpg
