Restoration of a Tonka concrete mixer. It was time to shoot a new Tonka Restoration video. The Tonka concrete mixer was very rusty. It was not an easy restoration project. But the result looks fantastic.

I bought the Tonka Cement Mixer on eBay for € 15. At first glance, the Tonka truck didn't look that bad. But when all the parts were disassembled, I saw how bad the condition is. There was a thick layer of rust under the paint. You could leave the paint by hand.
The rust was removed by sandblasting. Then the parts were dented. Holes caused by the rust have been filled. The parts were then primed by the Tonka concrete mixer and then painted.
The wheels were sanded with 300-grit sandpaper. The surface was then processed with a light flame. This gives the plastic a nice black color again.
Special info:
Bought on Ebay for 15 €
Duration of restoration 18 hours
Video cut 15 hours

I have this Mighty Mixer from when my kids were little and would like to try to restore it for the grandkids. Unfortunately, one of my kids liked to play with fire so he managed to melt some of the drum. Any idea how I could find a replacement drum for it? Is there some place you know of that supplies spare parts? And decals? I have searched online and cannot seem to locate a supplier, aside from buying another one to cannibalize. Of course, the decals would have to be new. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

How you do that? I could also implement every single move. But I could never do the whole thing. I probably lack patience. Although, as I said, I am able to do the craftsmanship, the individual handles are called. Then why can't I do it completely like you? We also like old things and these restored ones have a story, that's what makes the whole thing. Well questions after questions ... I give it a very good grade. (Google Translator)

Wie machst du das? Ich könnte jeden einzelnen Handgriff auch umsetzen. Aber das Gesamte könnte ich nie und nimmer umsetzen. Mir fehlt wahrscheinlich die Geduld. Obwohl ich wie gesagt in der Lage bin das Handwerklich zu können, soll heißen die einzelnen Griffe. Warum nur kann ich das dann nicht komplett auch so machen wie du? Wir stehen auch auf alte Sachen und diese restaurierten haben eine Geschichte, das ist es was das Ganze ausmacht. Naja Fragen über Fragen... Von mir gibt es eine sehr gute Note.

The spray paint was already cracking when fixing the metal fasteners back, maybe powder coating would be best. Also will that paint hold on the plastic? Wasn't their another option other than paint?

Awesome work! Just one question tho I know you're restoring it how it was originally painted but why not powder coat it so the paint lasts longer and is tougher? Just curious.

I restored a dumptruck and it did not cost a thing because I used spray paint I already had and was able to put screws in place of rivets It was an amature restoration but it turned out great
Any reason you didn't treat the metal first before painting?

You need to spread a towel to do the final assembly on. It's more professional than a scratch forming at the end. Also I'm not sure if you ever done automobile painting or not, but you need an exhaust system for the paint job. Also you need proper PPE while painting. Inhaling that paint fume is very dangerous.

I had one of these as a kid, but it was a light green color, not yellow. If I recall it also had 6 wheels. Kept that thing in pristine condition, and my son played with it when we visited the grand parents.

I have one like this, except it has a folding portion of the chute that I can't tell if it is missing from this one or if this one just never had it. I played with it a lot as a kid, and now both my boys use it in the back yard with all my other Tonka trucks :)

I grew up with Tonka trucks but by the time my kids came along Tonka went to mostly plastic. So I never bought them. There were too many cheaper brands then that were plastic and Tonka was still the most expensive.
