I bought the beautiful Tonka Car Carrier Truck on eBay for € 30. The Tonka Car Carrier Truck is very large. It is 1.20 m long in total. So that the truck looks like new again, let's start with the restoration.
First of all, the Tonka Car Carrier Truck was completely dismantled. Then all metal parts were freed from rust. Since the parts were so big, it took a while until everything was sandblasting. Actually, the freshly blasted parts should be coated with the powder gun. Unfortunately the Tonka Car Carrier Truck is so big that the parts don't fit in my oven. That's why I had to paint all parts with the spray can. First the parts were primed and then painted with the appropriate color.
Since the engine grill was busy I made a new one. I took the engine grill from the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck as a template. With a vacuum machine it is possible to produce a new part by molding. The Vaquform company made one of their devices available to me. If you are interested, take a look at the website of the company Vaquform. They have really very good products.
The bikes were actually in good condition. It was just washed. Small stones that were in the cracks of the wheels were removed with a flat screwdriver. Since the old axles were pretty rusty, I made new ones. To make the headlights white, I put them in hydrogen peroxide. After 12 hours, the headlights looked like new.
Grant all components were assembled. Of course, the original stickers should not be missing on the Tonka truck. That's why I got some stickers on Ebay. It was a very nice restorations project. If you liked it, give a thumbs up. Don't forget to leave a comment.

So schön diese Restaurierung auch ist, beim Tiefziehen des Motorgrills (07:40) stimmt etwas nicht. Tiefziehen hat den Nachteil, dass die ursprüngliche Form nicht absolut identisch nachgebildet werden kann. Scharfe Kanten werden bei der tiefgezogenen Kopie immer weicher, runder. Das liegt in der Natur dieser Technik. Im Video wird die hauchdünne Plastik schwarz lackiert (08:34) und eine Szene später wird das Original von Tonka eingebaut (08:45). Das ist daran erkennbar, dass es nun wieder dicke Druckgussplastik ist, die exakte, scharfe Kanten hat. Die tiefgezogene Kopie mit handgemachter Lackierung würde niemals so ordentlich und industriell gefertigt aussehen. --------------- As nice as this restoration is, something is wrong with the deep-drawing of the engine grill (07:40). Deep drawing has the disadvantage that the original shape cannot be reproduced in an absolutely identical manner. Sharp edges become softer and rounder in the deep-drawn copy. That is in the nature of this technique. In the video, the wafer-thin plastic is painted black (08:34) and one scene later the original is installed by Tonka (08:45). This can be seen from the fact that it is now thick die-cast plastic again with exact, sharp edges. The deep-drawn copy with hand-made varnish would never look so neat and industrially manufactured.

that was "very rusty"? I've seen a lot of real trucks with more rust than that thing started with. A little surface rust on only part of the trailer and the axles isn't quote/unquote "very rusty".

I had this toy as a kid, the only thing that can make it better is if you have the cars that came with it to complete the set, would love to see the restoration of the cars to go with it, great job thanks for sharing!!!

You did a great job, but the wheels were not restored, Tonka trucks always had white letters on the wheels. Overall good job.

@Jose Bonas Se nota que no es un coleccionista serio, cuando un coleccionable tiene el 90% de su pintura original y el 100% de sus piezas en muy buen estado NO se restaura a ese nivel, basta un tratamiento exhaustivo de limpieza.

Wow, it is large. I had a green dune buggy, a back hoe, a camper van (i'm not sure if it was a Tonka or not but the cardboard packaging said something like the rubber Wheels were warrantied for 5 miles...) You have an amazing opportunity to add discrete battery powered LED back lights!!

Nice restoration! Your rattle can paint job Looks as good or better than powder coat and I bet its cheaper!

Powder coating is actually not that expensive. actually just as expensive as paint from the spray can. But powder coating has the great advantage that it is much harder and more robust against scratches. 🙂

@MW Restoration Great! Have you also seen the way to get rid of the ugly white bits of worn plastic on tyre treads? Its just like how plexiglass is quickly edge polished... a very quick run over a flame. White bits gone! Try it on an old clean plastic toy tyre. Axle through and spin it over a naked flame 🧡

Nice. I like the paint more than the powder coating to be honest as it is more original. I like that vacuum molding machine. I have been toying with the idea of making a Mighty Tonka Wrecker RC rock crawler.

I'm a bit bewildered at the need to cut the axels. That was just completely unnecessary.

first of all I had to mount new axles one way or another. Second, the hat caps were difficult to remove. but since i didn't want to break the rim, i cut the axles. ☺️

@MW Restoration I would imagine other painting methods could seem less effective after you get used to the finish produced by powder coating but there is no drop off of results for you with this one. Thanks for your reply.
