VideoHere is a short 4 min video of my process for restoring original paint. It has the crucial step that I anticipate most do not think of, which is using clay bar. This is far from perfect, but perhaps something for the purists. Thanks for looking.

Clay is often used when detailing  car paint.

Steve is correct. The clay that was used in this is part of a kit you can get online or at an auto parts shop. I am not sure whether regular clay will work. Also, there is a spray that comes with it that is needed to lubricate between the clay and paint. Bellow, there is a link to the kit, thanks for watchingAmazon

Great video ryan. It shows one of my favorite ways to display which is very clean, but original shape. I havent read it anywhere but i believe the overall process and the wax finish should keep it from further rusting. Thanks for sharing.

Nice little production there, Ryan.  Clay - done many a black car with it, followed by extended naps...   :sleeping:
So I've gotta ask - did you put the fan back together with the paint in the condition at the end of your vid, or was this just pieces used to show your technique?  Personally those pieces would be a strip & repaint in my book.

Tom, the piece was mostly a demonstration. I agree it is in too bad of shape. Thanks all for the nice replies!
