Restoration of a heavily rusted
Tonka Mighty Dump Truck from 1970. The dump truck will look like new again. Check out the beautiful restorations project. Very rusty tonka looks new again !!
Again I found a new restoration project on eBay. This time it's a very old Tonka Mighty dump truck from the 1970s.
First, the entire Tonka dump truck was dismantled. All metal parts were blasted with the sandblaster. I used powder coating for painting. The first thing was primed with a gray paint. This was sanded. For heavily rusted parts, I primed a second time. Finally, the dump truck was powdered yellow.
The wheels were sanded with 200 abrasive paper. Then washed and then processed with fire. This gives the plastic a nice black look.
Since the axles were very rusty, I made new ones out of stainless steel.
Unfortunately the windshield could not be restored. That's why a new windshield was bought. Then all components were assembled. So that the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck looks like the original, I bought new original stickers.
